some guy named Chuck Prophet is on tour...

hey; He's coming to Toronto on Friday July 4th.. and he's around touring.. though not minneapolis way.
Anyways.. I have never seen him. I 'm making it my business though, because he works with people who I love.
Kelly Willis.. he produced her album. She chose him I think. Alejandro Escovedo.. they are playing just days apart.. in Toronto. I think Eleni Mandel in the beginning worked with him.

So.. no posters arrived and I made my own. He's not a household name. I think he has a harder time than gary louris. There you go... touring and we'll see how many people show.
Oh, he's from Green on Red.. isn't that enough? Old history though,, these days who is old enough to know that band. Us forty somethings.

Added bonus.. on tour on some dates, he had Mark Mallman opening. Not for Toronto.. but I know that name from Pete Anderson.. minneapolis's pete anderson.. so just shows how much chuck prophet can infilitrate your music life.. even into your minneapolis home town and he's from san francisco.

Proceed with chuck prophet stories to gear me up for hearing this music man's gig next week.

He's appeared on a track or two of Warren Zevon's also.

Good ol' Chuck puts on one of the best shows you'll see. Very highly recommended.
