Win 2 Tickets to Patrick Sweany at Soda Bar
Enter to win 2 tickets to Patrick Sweany at Soda Bar!
Patrick Sweany likes the spaces in between. On a given night (or on a given album), he'll swing through blues, folk, soul, bluegrass, maybe some classic 50s rock, or a punk speedball. He's a musical omnivore, devouring every popular music sound of the last 70 years, and mixing 'em all together seamlessly into his own stew. Yet, the one thing that most people notice about Patrick isn't his ability to copy - it's his authenticity. Like his heroes, artists like Bobby "Blue" Bland, Doug Sahm, Joe Tex, Patrick somehow manages to blend all of these influences into something all his own.
It's no wonder that as a kid he immersed himself in his dad's extensive record collection: 60s folk, vintage country, soul, and, of course, blues. Patrick spent hours teaching himself to fingerpick along to Leadbelly, Lightnin' Hopkins, and other folk-blues giants.
The concert takes place at 8:30pm at Soda Bar on Saturday, September 6th. The Record Company and John Meeks open.
