I think just as a general rule, if you are signed to Jack White’s Third Man Records, you are just probably in general cooler than most folks. St. Louis-born Pokey LaFarge plays American roots rock in a way that would make Elvis proud. He is bringing his band, the South City Three to Washington D.C. tomorrow night, and joined us for our 5GB series.
What’s the first gig you ever attended?
A blue grass festival in Litchfield, Illinois.
What is the best gig that you ever played/performed?
Ryman Auditorium. Sept. 15 2011.
What is the best gig you have ever seen?
Hard to say but most recently I’d say Merle Haggard w/ Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives.
What is the gig you would most like to play?
One of the Fox Theaters.
What would be the lineup for your dream gig?
Impossible Dream: Me, Bob Wills & his Texas Playboys and Lefty Frizzell.
