Pete Anderson 

@ Cody's Viva Cantina

Sunday, Apr 20 2014
Comments
Guitar man Pete Anderson's brand of original blues is thoroughly contemporary and deeply imbued with the brawny heritage of his native Detroit. Anderson is also an acutely self-possessed perfectionist, yet those qualities never detract from the stunning musicality with which he has long distinguished himself. No ham-fisted bar-band blues rocker he; every song is a study in elegant, spontaneous combustion, at once earthy and emotionally desperate but put across with an intoxicating combination of impeccable technique and soulful involvement. You can hear this cat once a week for two months straight (he also gigs every Monday at Burbank's Moose Lodge), and he'll never play a song the same way twice. This kind of elevated musical kapow is exactly what we all need more of.
Sun., April 20, 8 p.m., 2014 (Expired: 04/20/14)
