Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore @ the MIM
Dave Alvin & Jimmie Dale Gilmore are on the road, jokingly referred to as the “Great Digression Tour”. Jimmie Dale confessed that his best songs are by Butch Hancock, then played My Mind’s Got a Mind Of Its Own. Dave offered up Downey Girl, written in homage to Downey CA’s own Karen Carpenter. Jimmie Dale followed w/wistful A Pirate Looks at 40. Dave then recognized the beach/ocean theme with Surfer Girl. There were many digressions on Ramblin’ Jack Elliot. Dave wrapped things up eloquently with his “song of hometowns” 4th of July.
