GIGS: Steve Earle + Tiny Vipers
Steve Earle is an American Music Legend, goddamn it, bound for the pantheon with Johnny Cash, Woody Guthrie, Elvis, Chuck Berry, and Willie Nelson. You know that, right? If not, better see why music critics love him. The over-thirty crowd may have originally heard him on the excellent Dead Man Walking soundtrack. Critically-acclaimed HBO series The Wire also featured Earle as leader of a drug rehab group. He’s a talented Americana singer-songwriter, reformed drug addict, actor, and activist for a host of social justice issues. His music is a blend of folk, rock, and world influences. Hailing from Seattle, Tiny Vipers has a buzz growing about her quirky folk voice and rhythms.
