A summer night in Winters
The Palms Playhouse, once a barn located in Davis, always seems to be an epicenter for whatever town it happens to reside in. For the last couple of years, Winters has played host to the lovely club in a small opera house whose interior more resembles a high-school gymnasium than a place to hear arias and multipart love sagas. This week, Chicago-based Robbie Fulks, onetime member of Grammy-nominated bluegrass group the Special Consensus, will grace the venue on a tour in support of his latest release, Georgia Hard. Out now on Yep Roc Records, it’s largely a country record displaying Fulks’ penchant for off-kilter lyrics, awkward humor and musical prowess. Fulks’ unpredictability is his greatest attribute. If tracks like “Leave It To A Loser” and “All You Can Cheat” don’t put a smile on your frown, consider yourself hopeless. Fulks plays the Palms Playhouse, located at 13 Main Street in Winters, on Tuesday. The show is at 8 p.m. and costs $12. Visit www.robbiefulks.com for sound bites and more info.
