My first (and only) experience of Devon Williams so far has been seeing him and his band open for Destroyer last month. Already, the Los Angeles-based Williams is turning around for his own tour, which stops back at the Rhythm Room on June 18. Get tickets ($7) here.
Because I’m leaving for Chicago that day, I’ll miss the show. And, to be honest, I haven’t even listened to Williams’ full-length Carefree (at eMusic). But I have listened to the infectious song Elevator many times over. Based on that alone, I’d say it would be worth checking out the show. (Although it’s one of a slew of worthwhile shows that day … RZA, Jimmy Eat World, Russian Circles, Times New Viking and that one dude named Tom Waits.)
