Tony Joe White
Southland Ballroom, Raleigh
Saturday, Feb. 15
, his first domestically released album in nearly 10 years, swamp rock legend Tony Joe White
made his way to the Southland Ballroom
on Saturday night. He was greeted by a large and enthusiastic crowd of fans, and many of them could be overheard proclaiming that they attended White’s previous Triangle appearance at The Pour House a decade ago.
With his trademark rattlesnake guitar strap, White’s hour-long set included many numbers from his new Yep Roc release. His latest offering is as close to the heart of Louisiana swamp rock as one could hope for: brooding song lyrics, greasy guitar licks and solid percussion with a blues man’s howl on top. Check out some videos of the performance below.
