JD McPherson Live Performance & Signing - Free & All Ages

Amoeba Hollywood

6400 W Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, 90028

6:00pm

Let The Good Times Roll, the latest album from acclaimed musician, songwriter and performer JD McPherson, is out now on Rounder Records. He visits Amoeba for a live set and album signing (purchase your copy at Amoeba to get it signed after his performance).

You can also see him at The Greek Theatre on June 2nd, opening for Robert Plant & The Sensational Space Shifters.

"…pure-and-simple party music, make-out music and get-down-and-shake-it music, harbouring the sort of simple riffs and hooks that easily hop across the decades.” - BBC

"He’s influenced by all sorts of things from all different worlds. But when he ingests it, it sort of comes out like this bastard child of Little Richard. This cat JD McPherson is just the real deal. It’s totally for real. And I think to myself, where has this been my whole life?” - Josh Homme, Queens of the Stone Age

Produced by Mark Neill (The Black Keys’ Brothers, Old 97s, Los Straitjackets) along with McPherson, Let The Good Times Roll was recorded at Soil of the South Studio in Valdosta, GA. Additional recording was done with Alex Hall at HiStyle Studio in Chicago, IL and Michael Trepagnier at 3CG Studio in Tulsa, OK. McPherson also co-wrote the song "Bridge Builder” with Dan Auerbach. Of the new album, McPherson comments, "Much of the new song material was asking for a different sonic treatment. I was thinking of these big, bombastic sounds; lots of guitars, tons of percussion; plate reverb.”

This new music follows McPherson’s widely praised 2012 debut, Signs and Signifiers, which KEXP described as, "…a scorching rock ‘n’ roll record that sounds like it could have been recorded in the ‘50s without seeming retro. Engineered to restore your faith in rock ‘n’ roll, it’ll have you involuntarily snapping your fingers and bobbing your head” and MOJO magazine called, "…an utterly irresistible, slicked-back triumph.” Additionally, surrounding Signs and Signifiers, McPherson was selected as a Rolling Stone "Artist to Watch,” an NPR Music "Artist You Should Know” and a WXPN "Artist to Watch.” He was also awarded "Best Rock/Hard Rock Album” at the 2012 Independent Music Awards.
