G. Love and Special Sauce

Thursday, March 8, at Knitting Factory Concert House


Before Jack Johnson, Ben Harper or Jason Mraz, there was Philadelphia musician G. Love, who was cranking out sunny, feel-good blues tunes while those other guys were still living under their parents' roofs.

G. Love has been in the music biz since the early '90s, and despite never hitting the big time with a popular single or hit record, his laid-back jams and groovy melodies--along with a very professional live show--have kept fans coming to concerts and buying records.

For G. Love's current tour, he's traveling as a trio with Timo Shanko on upright bass and Jeffrey Clemens on drums. The setlist will center on his latest offering, 2012's delta blues-inspired Fixin to Die. He'll also drop in a number of old-school hip-hop jams and greatest hits. For diehards hoping to catch a particular rarity or old favorite, you can tweet @glove before the show with your request.
