Robert Earl Keen, tonight at the World Cafe Live


Robert Earl Keen plays the World Cafe Live tonight. Last year about this time, Keen played Philadelphia for the first time in a long time, and I interviewed him in the pages of the Philadelphia Inquirer. That Q and A is here.

Keen is one of the sharpest, savviest, funniest roots-country songwriters alive, and he brings with him an excellent band, whose like is rarely seen in these parts, featuring Rich Brotherton on guitar. And because it's still January, he might even do his dysfunctional family mini-masterpiece "Merry Christmas From the Family."

"Gringo Honeymoon" is below. Andrea Davison opens up. Show info is here.
