Gary Clark Jr. Staff Pick

When: Sun., Aug. 4, 8 p.m. 2019
Price: $29.50-$125
Gary Clark Jr. has fucking had it with Trump country. “Fuck you, I’m America’s son/ This is where I come from,” Clark declares on the politically charged title track from his most recent record, This Land. Released earlier this year, This Land does not stray from the 35-year-old’s wheelhouse of blues-infused rock that toggles between the past and the present, as well as the many internal and external forces that make Clark tick — and in the case of This Land, implode. Clark has shared a stage with Eric Clapton and Beyoncé, is a regular opener for the Rolling Stones, and when he was included in a lineup with Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, and Buddy Guy at the White House in 2012, he not only received a standing ovation but President Obama called Clark “the future.”
