Last night, we were graced with the presence of Lucky Tubb & The Modern Day Troubadours. I expected the show to be sold out and Public Assembly packed to the gills, but the Northside Music Festival seemed to trump all in Williamsburg. Us devotees did get a great show 🙂
I got a chance to hang out with Lucky a bit and he was his usual easy going gentleman self. We talked about his new cd, Hillbilly Fever, and how the hidden track (which is my favorite) “Looks Like Rain” was done on the fly at the end of recording. They had a few minutes to fill and Lucky pretty much improvised it. It’s Tom Waits esqe and hauntingly beautiful. This man is no one trick pony. He’s coming back to Brooklyn in November and I’ll keep you posted on dates and venues.
