John Fullbright is at Knuckleheads tonight

One of the new great hopes of the No Depression/alt-country scene is John Fullbright, a 24-year-old singer-songwriter wunderkind. He's been compared with everybody from Steve Earle to Townes Van Zandt to Randy Newman to Woody Guthrie, with whom he shares a hometown of Okemah, Oklahoma. But I think his work most resembles the literary Southern wisdom you find in Mike Cooley's songs for the Drive-By Truckers. (See: "Jericho" from 2012's From the Ground Up.) Fullbright is playing with a full band for this Knuckleheads show; it's a special "living room session" - high on intimacy, low on seating.

Tuesday, January 15, at Knuckleheads Saloon, 8 p.m. The show is sold out, but you might be able to rustle something up on Craigslist.
