Chuck Prophet will be performing a rare acoustic set. Ward Hayden lead singer of Girls Guns & Glory will also play a rare solo set. Ward will mix some GGG tunes along with some classic country songs. He is one of the finest singers of any genre and is one of the finest interpreters of old school country.

Chuck Prophet describes his new album ‘Bobby Fuller Died For Your Sins’ (Feb 10, Yep Roc) as a “California Noir,” an album inspired partly by the mysterious death of rocker Bobby Fuller in LA in 1966. “California has always represented the Golden Dream, and it’s the tension between romance and reality that lurks underneath the surface in all noir films and paperbacks, and that connects these songs.”

Gritty and jangly, Chuck’s new album features 13 original works that explore doomed love, loneliness and fast paced violence via Chuck’s muscular songwriting craft. They include songs about Fuller, the death of David Bowie, and the killing of a San Francisco security guard named Alex Nieto that drew international headlines as “Death By Gentrification.”

‘Bobby Fuller’ finds Chuck coming full circle. He cut the album to tape at Hyde Street Studio in San Francisco, which also happens to be the same studio where Prophet did his very first recording session, while still in high school. Chuck brought out his ’64 Stratocaster for the sessions, conjuring a sound that Jonathan Richman once described as “gasoline in the sand, like a motorcycle at a hot dog stand.”
