Live Performances podcast: T-Model Ford and GravelRoad (Live in Chicago)

photo by Jeremy Farmer

Day 2 of the KEXP broadcast from Engine Studios in Chicago brought another round of terrific and varied performances with elements of electronica, Americana, and indie-rock from Pretty Good Dance Moves, The Watson Twins, and Bottomless Pit, but when we learned that T-Model Ford would play a set, we knew it was bound to be a memorable experience. And the 86 year-old bluesman, backed by Seattle band GravelRoad, did not disappoint! From the first swig (literally), the “Taledragger” launched into a mix of old classics, like “Sallie Mae,” and originals, like “Ask Her For Water”.
