This was a fantastic show!!! John Doe was just phenomenal. His voice is so incredible, it just pierces your soul. The Ivy Substation is a great, intimate 99-seat theatre. This acoustical performance (ok, a couple of electric guitar tunes) was awesome.
Quotes & Highlights
“Doe is the most traditionalist punk you’ll ever hear; he calls up blues guitar lines and country conceits in his lyrics to bolster tough, direct arrangements.” —Rolling Stone
John Doe was the singer, bassist and leader of Los Angeles’s delightful X back in the ’70s and ‘80s, and is now an actor and singer/songwriter with four solo albums to his name
Singer-songwriter Jill Sobule lets her folk-inflected compositions alternate between ironic, story-driven character studies and emotive ballads, a powerful duality.
