Joe Pug

We went see Joe Pug and Justin Townes Earl at the Artscenter after a referral from my music savvy friend Caroline. Joe Pug was the opener and we enjoyed his gig the best. Now, I'll let some music writers do the talking :)

“One of the most surprising facts about singer-songwriter Joe Pug is that he’s only 23 years old. Not only does Chicago-based singer have a beautifully mature voice, but the lyrics on Pug’s debut EP, Nation of Heat, possess wisdom seemingly beyond his age.”–NPR

“While most singer/songwriters are content to warble out a few semi-clever turns of phrase, Pug’s scorching poetry and soulful, ‘every phrase could be my last’ voice will stop you cold. If you want to read the actual endorsement, touch the braille stretching up my arms. Twenty years from now, lazy journalists will compare every halfway decent songwriter to Joe Pug. Mark my words.”–Jason Killingsworth, Paste Magazine
Our favorite song from the show: Joe Pug - Hymn #101
