Rodriguez, oh Rodriguez. Perhaps you haven’t heard of internationally renowned, Detroit-native Sixto Rodriguez yet. Maybe you haven’t been given the opportunity to sample the fine, fine music that graces his amazing debut Cold Fact. You might not even know about how Large Professor and Nas sampled his classic hit “Sugarman” many years ago.

But you will. Light In The Attic is re-issuing his absolutely stellar 1970 debut Cold Fact (August 19th, save the date ’cause the lines going to be craaaaaaazy) and the world will soon know the magic that is Rodriguez. Drop down to the bottom of this post for a free download of “Sugarman”.

For now, be excited about this: for the first time ever, Rodriguez will play a live show in the United States of America. The man has been playing music for almost half a century, and now, for the first time ever, he’ll be playing, sunglasses and all, live in Montauk, New York (Long Island) this Saturday, the 26th of July.

That’s right, you East Coast folk are the luckiest people on Earth this weekend. Get your friends, scrounge up a little gas money, buy a six pack of road sodas and get to the Surf Lodge in Montauk, New York this Saturday for the first ever live appearance on American soil of RODRIGUEZ.
