David Lindley @ Cactus Cafe (8/15)

David Lindley plays the extremely intimate Cactus Cafe on the UT campus Friday night. Who’s David Lindley? Only one of the most sought after sessions guitarists in the world –  he’s played with Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne and Warren Zevon to name a few – in addition to fronting bands of his own. Ben Harper cites his unique slide guitar style as a major influence. If you go, be sure to pay attention to the equipment Mr. Lindley breaks out for he’s a bit of an eccentric with a reputation for using cheap, amateur guitars which generate a distinct sound. Still need convincing? Check out the clip below of him performing “Where’s Jimmy?” live somewhere circa 97. Tickets are at the door for $20 with things starting at 9pm.
