Mike Strauss Band features "one of the city's finest songwriters" tonight (7/30/11)



Mike Strauss Band David Childers, a man who knows a little something about songwriting, dubbed Mike Strauss one of the city’s finest songwriters, and who are we to argue? (Besides — have you seen the guns on Childers?) Strauss has been turning out solid roots-flavored rock for the better part of a decade, including last year’s short-but-sweet Ideal Road. He calls some of the best musicians in town bandmates, too, and on this night they’ll be joined by special guest John Morris on keys. For those of you with way-back machines, that means three-quarters of Come On Thunderchild — Morris, drummer David Kim and guitarist Randolph Lewis — on stage, and rumor has it they may even be breaking out an old CoT nugget or two. Opening for Truckstop Preachers and with the Aqualads. $10. Double Door Inn. www.doubledoorinn.com. (John Schacht)
