Pete Anderson at Double Door Inn tonight (9/8/2012)
PETE ANDERSON Producer, guitarist, label owner, songwriter, instrument designer and all-around twang master Pete Anderson has worked with A-list roots and Americana artists. In fact, peg Anderson as an early innovator and catalyst for Americana and the “new traditionalists” movements of folk and country, which of course includes his fabulous work with Dwight Yoakam. But when Anderson records solo material and hits the road with his six strings, his modus operandi is the blues, and he slings the guitar into expansive blues-rock, with a drizzling of rockabilly, honky-tonk, jazz and the aforementioned twang. Get there early to snag a spot near the stage, as his rep on the guitar and the cozy confines of the venue will make for a packed night. $10-$12. Sept. 8, 9 p.m. Double Door Inn, 1218 Charlottetowne Ave. 704-376-1446. www.doubledoorinn.com.
