It was only weeks ago that late-60s psych-folk-soul-singer-songwriter Rodriguez played his very first US show. As incredible as that is, it could be even more mind-blowing that tonight, September 3rd, one Sixto Rodriguez will play his very first New York City show … EVER. Yes, after nearly 30 years of obscurity, Rodriguez is playing for the first time in the grit and grime of New York at the very intimate 150-seat setting of Joe’s Pub. Tickets are extremely limited, so if you’re interested whatsoever in attending this historic, absolutely breath-taking performance, purchase your tickets now, RIGHT HERE.
For those of you who don’t know, Light In The Attic released Rodriguez’s amazing 1970 album, Cold Fact. It’s been getting amazing press from the likes of Pitchfork, Aquarium Drunkard, MOJO, UNCUT, Spin, and many, many more.
Well, we’d love for you to get even more acquainted with this brilliant, recently unearthed treasure, and our good friends at NPR took the time to put together an amazing seven-minute feature about Rodriguez. It’s beautifully put together, and you can check it out RIGHT HERE!
