Nov. 13: Dave Gleason at Rancho Nicasio


In the two years since he defected from the Bay Area to the land of freeways, Dodger fans and botox, the immeasurably talented Dave Gleason has managed to avoid every Southern California pitfall. Sticking true to his dusty, string-bending ways, the singer, songwriter and guitarist has fit right in with the paparazzi-free Southern California country-rock scene to which his heart has long been tied. His latest album, Just Fall to Pieces, garnered rave reviews, he began playing with the Bakersfield greats, and he started a weekly stand at the quintessential desert roadhouse Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneertown, Calif., near Joshua Tree. He hasn’t made it back up here as often as we’d thought, but this weekend he drops by the quintessential West Marin roadhouse for twang-infused harmonies about wine, women and wild livin’ on Friday, Nov. 13, at Rancho Nicasio. Town Square, Nicasio. 8:30pm. $10. 415.662.2219.Gabe Meline
