      Excellent show....Garland is "5" stars but the 4 stars are one star short due to poor sound/volume with the mic with talking portion of the band...... would not hesitate to watch another concert in the future!!!!! Being able to chat with others during the show was great too!!!!

Forty years into his career, Garland Jeffreys is enjoying the kind of creative second wind most artists can only hope for the first time around. 'Truth Serum,' his latest album, is a stripped-down tone poem from an artist taking his rightful place in the musical pantheon.

Jeffreys released a string of acclaimed albums and songs in the 70's and 80’s, including "Wild In The Streets," collaborated with everyone from John Cale and Dr. John to Stan Getz and Sonny Rollins, and in a testament to the broad appeal of his music, his songs have been covered by hardcore punkers The Circle Jerks and neo-folkies Vetiver alike.

Jeffreys roared back with 2011's 'The King of In Between.' Hailed by NPR as “as good a classic roots rock record as you’re going to hear from anybody," the record earned raves and led to a performance on Letterman, as well as appearances with everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Levon Helm. The experience fueled a revitalization for the rocker, whose ebullient, late-stage creative energy colors every note of 'Truth Serum,' an album that stands among his finest, combining the perspective that can only come from age and experience with the passion and grit that have made him "one of the city's rock and roll treasures" (New Yorker). It's the unvarnished truth of a man whose time has come.
