DJ Simo & GA-20

CL's Hal Horowitz: This rugged double bill is a must for every blues lover. Boston’s GA-20 (the name of a classic guitar amp, no connection with any route in Georgia) works their two guitar, drums, bass-free lineup for maximum intensity. A new Hound Dog Taylor covers set was a surprise hit in the house rocking blues circuit and these guys deliver the goods live. Simo approaches his blues with more psychedelic overtones, but is a mesmerizing guitarist also making waves in the genre. — HH
From the venue:On his new and first solo record, the soon to be released, OFF AT 11, recording artist and Chicago native now Nashvillian, JD SIMO wants you to know that above all things, what matters most to him is that music should be honest. The gifted artist more than offers this in a psychedelic, free-flowing, dynamic soundscape that exemplifies just thatâ€¦ Honesty.
