    Esquire Magazine writes about Gary Clark Jr’s Fashion Night Out performance:

    Okay, so we may not have exactly endorsed the teenagers-lining-up-for-free-drinks-in-the-corner that has become Fashion's Night Out, but that's not to say we don't like going out. And when it comes to Fashion Week parties, nobody does it quite like John Varvatos. There was the time Axl Rose sounded like Axl Rose again and played till what seemed like sunrise. There were the dueling ZZ Top-Alice Cooper sets last year. And on Thursday evening, there were The Roots. But before that there was Gary Clark Jr., the Austin-based 27-year-old gentlemen you see above, about whom our Austin-based music guy, Andy Langer, has been going on and on for a couple years now. That's because the kid's played on the same stage as Clapton, and because, when you listen to his new EP, you hear just as much Black Keys-level charge as just-another-blues-guitarist twang. They'll be more of that, he told The Style Blog after his set at the old CBGB, on his major-label debut next spring. "I've been pissing off my neighbors laying the foundation for this thing," he said. "Time to get away with as much as I can."

    And did we mention he can dress? "I'm usually a white t-shirt and Levi's kind of guy," Clark said. "But I get festive with the tank for a night like this." Now that we can endorse.

    Gus Griesinger with BackstageAxxess reviews Gary Clark Jr’s show at Club Infinity:

    “There are a lot of up and coming artists that you may hear about as the next big thing and it turns out they hit a certain plateau only to disappear into obscurity. Rest assured, this will not be the case for new fresh face of Gary Clark Jr. On August 25, 2011, at Stephen's Talkhouse, in Amagansett, NY, legends such as Roger Waters and Paul McCartney, and others like Jon Bon Jovi and Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live creator), came to this 160 capacity club to witness this new sensation. With less fanfare, Gary took the stage at Club Infinity in Williamsville, NY, to a comfortable crowd to whom he performed a 75 minute set comprised of covers and songs from his recently released EP called “Bright Lights.” The three (3) piece band consisted of Gary on lead guitar, Johnny Bradley on Bass and Johnny Radelat on drums.”
