Gabriel Sullivan - Locals Only - Monday 9pm

Locals Only features a live performance every Monday night from a local artist or group. This Monday it's Gabriel Sullivan who has a brand new CD, By The Dirt. It is the solo debut from this member of Fell City Shouts and American Black Lung. For his solo release, Gabriel Sullivan mines a Tom Waits vein with deep gravelly songs that snake through old timey blues, country, gospel, jazz and rock. It is a great collection of original songs with two covers, a tip o' the hat to Rainer Ptacek and Chris Gaffney. There is strong thread of Tucson and the desert Southwest running through this release, which is aided by the choice of covers and a cast of local music luminaries such as Tom Walbank, Marco Rosano, Brittany Dawn, Nick Luca, Joey Burns, Vicki Brown, Arthur Vint and others. Tune in Monday night at 9pm to hear who shows up for the live from Studio 2A performance. Locals Only is every Monday night from 8 to 10pm, with a hour long live in-studio performance and interview at 9pm. Gabriel Sullivan celebrates the release of By The Dirt with a show Friday August 28th at Club Congress. Follow link for a full review of the album from our friends at Blurt.
