Pokey LaFarge

Bourbon Theatre, 1415 O St  Lincoln

8 p.m., $12: ADV | $15: DOS,


Says LaFarge about his music, “It’s not retro music. It’s American music that never died.” The genre bending, generation blending stylings of LaFarge have crafted a sound that’s as familiar as it is fresh to the listener. He draws from old ragtime, early jazz, country blues and western swing music creating a concoction that takes on a completely different feel from the parts of the whole. This past year, LaFarge signed with Jack White’s Third Man Records and promptly released his, self titled, seventh studio album. America is beginning to take notice with LaFarge pocketing back-to-back Best Americana Album win by the Independent Music Awards, for his album Middle of Everywhere, an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman earlier this summer and a host of his orginal scores have been featured on both the big screen and television, including HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.
