In whites-of-their-eyes intimacy

When it comes to house concerts, you're in excellent hands with Greg Trooper. He's already done three living-room shows in the Triangle, and the one he did in the summer of 2000 was even recorded and released as the album Between a House and a Hard Place: Live at Pine Hill Farm. When I was a kid, the concert records to own were Peter Frampton's Frampton Comes Alive and Emerson Lake & Palmer's Welcome Back My Friends to The Show That Never Ends. In contrast to those big-arena live documents, Live at Pine Hill Farm is all about capturing the whites-of-their-eyes intimacy and BYOB spirit of a house concert; you can actually feel Trooper and his wise, Jersey-to-Nashville folk-rock connecting with the crowd. The Forty Acres group gives you another chance to catch Trooper in a laid-back setting, showcasing songs from his new country-soulful Floating (released by Durham's Sugar Hill Records) this Saturday, July 19, at 8 p.m. For more information, see www.fortyacres.org.
