Doors at 6:30 PM, Show at 7:30 PM
JON PARDI’s a country singer, bred in the West Coast honky tonks, is more concerned with making country music that will last than injecting country songs with programmed drums, rap phrasing and pop melodies. Pardi became familiar to the suddenly-hip country crowd, thanks to his Top 10 party song “Up All Night.” Pardi drew a raucous following, sometimes out-performing higher-profile country acts playing across town the same night. Ushered into the world on the same label that launched Buck Owens and Merle Haggard, Pardi has found a whole chain of believers in his mission: the dedicated band behind him, the foot-stomping fans with cold beers at the foot of the stage, and a label that knows Pardi’s “throwback” sound is really made for these times.
