Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore and the Guilty Ones

Share

Just announced:  WMNF favorites The Hummingbirds (with band) will open this great show!

What a dream pairing!

Roots music legends, Dave Alvin and Jimmie Dale Gilmore, have been friends for 30 years, but only recently realized they had never played music with each other before. 

So in 2017, Grammy winner Alvin and Grammy nominee Gilmore, decided to hit the highway to swap songs, tell stories, and share their life experiences.  

Though Texas born Gilmore was twice named Country Artist of the Year by Rolling Stone, and California native Alvin first came to fame in the hard rocking rhythm and blues band The Blasters, they discovered that their musical roots in old blues and folk music are exactly the same. 

In these spontaneous shows, audiences enjoyed classic original compositions from the two, and also songs from a wide spectrum of songwriters and styles – from Merle Haggard to Sam Cooke to the Young Bloods.  Mutually energized and inspired by these performances, Dave and Jimmie agreed to hit the road again in 2018…this time with a full band, and an album, Downey to Lubbock and some new stories to share.

Music begins at 8pm with the Hummingbirds (8pm – 8:45pm) and Dave & Jimmie take the stage between 9:15-9:30pm ~ The show ends by 11:30pm.

Tickets are $22 Advance & $27 at the Door
