Jym Chapman & The Migrant Workers, Philip Roebuck, The Joy Kills, Time Sawyer

When: Sat., April 7 2012

PHILLIP ROEBUCK At the start of the 20th century, Sears, Roebuck and Company would ship you a house. It came in a boxcar — all you had to do was put it together. And there it was, a self-contained unit, wherever you wanted it to go. As a banjo-strumming solo roots-punk artist with a bass drum strapped to his back, Phillip Roebuck is the classic Sears House. A self-contained unit, all he needs to play a show is space enough to stand. His music implies as much ramshackle rail-riding Americana as classic Wobbly rally anthems. As for the latter, he probably knows a few. With Jym Chapman and the Migrant Workers, The Joy Kills and Time Sawyer. (Corbie Hill)
