Tonight: Joe Purdy at the Bluebird
To say that Joe Purdy (due this evening at the Bluebird Theater with The Milk Carton Kids) is prolific would be, well, exactly accurate -- the singer-songwriter has released ten albums in ten years, all while touring. His workman like approach has paid off in the form of devoted fans, and live shows often become massive group sing-alongs of melancholic road songs.
Tapping into the same heartfelt place Cat Stevens once did and fitting in with contemporaries like Ray LaMontagne and James Morrison, Purdy's vocal simplicity has made his work television soundtrack perfection, finding its way on early episodes of LOST and Grey's Anatomy. This show is sixteen and up, and tickets are $15.50-18. Doors open at 7 p.m., and performances begin at 8 p.m.
