Smither rocks

If you are a Chris Smither fan and live in the Boston area, here's a chance to see him perform like you've never before. Check out this note from the Smither camp:

Chris Smither: Bluesman Turned Rocker for a Night?
On Thursday, March 27, a relatively unknown local band, Leroy Purcell and the Motivators, will perform at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge. Thing is, they aren't actually unknown musicians. The 8 p.m. show will feature the normally-solo American roots and blues master Chris Smither, performing with a band featuring multi-instrumentalist David Goodrich and drummer Zak Trojano. Tickets are $10.
The show will be a little more amplified, a little more instrumentally diverse, and a whole lot of fun."I just finished writing a short story about a Texas highway patrolman I met on the road a few years ago, and thought it would be fun to play a show, that is so different from my normal style, billed under his name."

Should be a fun night.
