500 Songs for Kids

Last minute “show” added. I’ll be playing the 500 Songs for Kids event at Smith’s Olde Bar tomorrow night (Friday, May 17th). Will be covering a Vic Chesnutt song, and looking forward to hearing from tons of Atl acts throughout the night. The night benefits Atlanta’s Songs for Kids Foundation. Actually got a fundraising page HERE– have a look and consider supporting this important community effort.

Fine new review in from Athens’ Flagpole Magazine:

“Does anyone remember when Wilco was a real, dyed-in-the-wool country band? In their first release as a unit, Adam Klein & The Wild Fires come awfully close to invoking some of the early period of the mega-band’s output. Sure, there is certainly less grovel in Klein’s voice than in Tweedy’s, but the songwriting on Sky Blue DeVille (and on the title track in particular) is reminiscent of A.M.– to Summerteeth-era Wilco… the album spotlights a singer-songwriter who knows that restraint is often just as important as showing off one’s instrumental prowess. As a result, listeners might also hear the spirit of Big Star’s Alex Chilton living on in many of these songs.”
