Joe Pug

Wednesday, September 5, 2018, 8:00 PM


The rise of Joe Pug, who lives in Austin, Texas, these days, has been as improbable as it has been impressive. After dropping out of the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and taking on work as a carpenter in Chicago, he got his musical start by providing CDs for his fans to pass along to their friends. The unconventional method paid off, as thousands of requests poured in, leading to a string of sold-out shows and a record deal with Nashville indie Lightning Rod Records. He released two EPs and the albums "The Messenger" (2010) and "The Great Despiser" (2012) to wide acclaim. His latest album, "Windfall," was released in March 2015. Though he collected plenty of the requisite comparisons to early Springsteen and Dylan over his young career, on this album it's easier to hear the sway of more contemporary influences such as Josh Ritter, Ryan Adams and M. Ward.
