Joe Purdy (6/28/11)

Finally rounding out my June shows (finally).  Joe Purdy was a bit of a last minute decision.  I really didn't know much about Joe, other than he's had a long career, and that I was surprised I hadn't heard of him before. Especially since he has that sort-of Ray LaMontagne vibe.

We got there early and checked out the Milk Carton Kids.  Very fun and charming.  Nice sound too...  A couple of great guitarists.  Check them out, they're giving their stuff away online.

Joe Purdy was up next and for the beginning of his set, he was solo on stage.  The Beachland was well attended with this seated performance.  The crowd was a bit unusual, and unfortunately the down-side of the evening. It's amazing how a few loud drunks can ruin a show.

Still, Joe powered on as a professional would.  His rustic voice and great songwriting really shined through and I can see why people are drawn to him.  His set was only better when the Milk Carton Kids joined him on stage.
