Bedrock 66 Live! Bonus Show!
Online Sales end at Noon the day of the show. Tickets will be available at the door.
Steve Poltz is obsessed with the challenge of knowing and understanding the thoughts of each and
every person in his audience. He is a lover of life; fascinated by all things large and small. As a roadtested
troubadour armed with whimsy, curiosity and a healthy respect for the absurdities of existence,
he is unafraid of saying yes, unafraid of letting his relentless, giddy energy fill a room and he is
unafraid of letting his streams-of-consciousness take him where he needs to go.
His songs are guileless snapshots filtered through the windshield of his brain. He opens his mouth and
lets it fall out - a SONG - and it's as shameless and intriguing and profound and wondrous as he is. A
mix of high octane performance, singular wit and endlessly entertaining storytelling, Steve is legendary
for his improvisational songwriting and timeless, original classics. Oh, and he's a pretty good guitarist
Grant Lee Phillips
In a career defined by risk and reflection, Phillips only just recently took on the biggest gamble of his
lifeand with the wager comes The Narrows.
This concentrated nexus of romance, recollection, historic struggles and tragedies, and peerless
craftsmanship coupled with the hopes, fears, and isolation that accompany transition formed the
backdrop of The Narrows, Phillips' latest dispatch on Yep-Roc Records will be released on March 19th.
Bathed in a woody, warmly reverberating sonic signature, the album's thirteen songs are marked by
longing and a resolute sense of purpose: As though hurling yourself full-force into the unknown is as
sensible as any other more commonly prescribed course. After all, what feels unknown may be residing
just below the surface should you be willing to dig for it and be open to discovery.
