JD McPherson / Dylan Pratt - Music Hall of Williamsburg - February 28th, 2015

In very different ways, JD McPherson and opening artist, Dylan Pratt gave a concert on Saturday night that seriously kicked ass.

Pratt's vocals reminded me of mixture of Chris Martin and the late Jeff Buckley. Though Pratt didn't have much to say between songs, his intricate guitar playing and intelligent lyrics spoke loud and clear.

As for JD McPherson, there's not  much to say except they're a great band.  They're fun to watch, fun to listen to, and definitely a band that would make Bo Diddley, Little Richard and Buddy Holly proud of their legacy.
