If you live in the greater Boston area and you haven’t seen Bryan McPherson blow the roof off any of the area’s show-going establishments, you’ve really done yourself a disservice. Astute readers will recall out rundown of a particularly special night at the Midway Cafe back in June.
Anyway, the folk-punk troubadour has announced preliminary details behind a couple of hometown holiday shows that’ll take place at the very same Midway. Dubbed the Boxing Day Blowout due to the event taking place the day after Christmas, there are actually two shows lined up; a 4pm all ages matinee that features Jenn Lombari (Lucky United), Carissa Johnson and, of course, OC45. Tickets are here. That’ll be followed by a 21+ show that kicks off at 9pm, and features Matt Charette, Time & Place and Live Nude Girls…and it wouldn’t be unlike McPherson to play another barn-burner of a set until the wee hours. Tickets for that one are here.
McPherson is presently touring the Pacific Northwest in support of his latest (and undeniably greatest) album, “Wedgewood,” which was self-released on his OFD Records earlier this year; stream/buy it here. While you’re at it here’s the sitdown we did with McPherson in advance of that album.
