John Doe Folk Trio


Tractor Tavern Ballard
Thurs Sept 20, 8 pm 21+


Recommended by Andrew Hamlin

You know, or you should know, John Doe as one-fourth of the punk-rock band X, and while I always preferred the Germs (who loved X), X had the ear of the Doors’ Ray Manzarek, and they shuffled along inheriting some of Jim Morrison’s neo-noir, creepy-underpass ambience. Doe’s done plenty of movies, sometimes not as a musician, but often on a bandstand—I’m partial to Georgia, where he keeps plunking through that all-too-common moment of the bar-band player where, yes, everything is going to shit, but the plunk must go on, because they don’t get paid if they stop. His album The Westerner points toward mellower, more C&W-influenced sounds; but a neo-noir punk should have a full bag of tricks.
