Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Chuck Prophet/Michael Fracasso

When: Wed., Nov. 6, 8:30 p.m. 2013

Singer-guitarist Chuck Prophet has put together an incredible career. The guy started out with the garage rock act Green on Red in the ’80s and then spent much of the ’90s working as a songwriter in Nashville where he wrote hits for acts like Heart, Solomon Burke, Kim Richey and Chris Knight. In the 2000s, he put together the Mission Express, a killer band named after the bus line that runs through his neighborhood, and has toured heavily behind a slew of terrific solo efforts, the latest of which is last year’s rootsy Temple Beautiful, an album that veers between mid-tempo ballads (“The Left Hand and the Right Hand”) and rockabilly rave-ups (“Little Girl, Little Boy”). The album is as good as anything Tom Petty has put out in the past decade. (Niesel)
