Pokey LaFarge at the Wonder Ballroom Tuesday

By SCOTT CUNNINGHAM // Swings through town in support of latest album "Manic Revelations"

Evidently, time is flying by because when I started to think about writing down some thoughts about Pokey LaFarge I was kind of surprised to (re)discover that since his debut in 2006 he has put out seven studio albums. His latest is this year's "Manic Revelations", which will be front and center during his gig Tuesday night at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland. Out of St. Louis, LaFarge has been on the leading edge of what could be called a throw-back rockabilly vibe. The music is catchy in a pop-ish way and LaFarge has surrounded himself with a first-rate group of musicians. Check out the video of him performing Better Man on Conan this week and then go grab some tickets, Tuesday night gigs don't get any better.

ON TOUR: Pokey LaFarge appears at the Wonder Ballroom in Portland on Tuesday, August 22, 2017. Doors 7:30PM. Tickets are still available for the 21+ show.
