A Rocker in the Neighborhood: Scott McClatchy
Rocktober--our month of five amazing concerts--had only been over for two measly days, and already Andre and I were jonesing for a show. So tonight we couldn't help ourselves; we drove over to the Ardmore Music Hall to catch a set by Scott McClatchy, whose credentials are impressive. He's worked with Steve Earle, the BoDeans, John Hiatt, and Little Steven, and he has recorded with Scott Kempner, Willie Nile, and Dion:
He also happens to be our neighbor, more or less, as he lives in our relatively sleepy Pennsylvania town.
We'd never met Scott before, and had never seen him play. The show was a treat--a burst of good-time rock and roll, complete with horn section and a couple of Van Morrison covers--"Domino" and "Tupelo Honey" for good measure.
Scott used to play with a band called The Stand, and he's got solo albums I'll be checking out. In the meantime, it's just good to know we've got a real rocker in the neighborhood.
