    Scott Nelson of Audioasis reviews Gary Clark Jr’s recent performance in Toronto at the Rivoli.

    Friday, August 19th @ Rivoli.

    Gary Clark Jr. is the truth. There’s no doubting that after seeing him live last night. As beautiful and important as The Bright Lights EP is, his live show is something to be coveted. He spits guitar wielding fire at you without conscience, leaving your tongue hanging to put out the flames. He has a soul based in tradition, but he’s a musician for the future.

    Watch video of Gary Clark Jr. performing B.B. King‘s “3 O’Clock Blues” live at SoHo House at Okayplayer.

    Okayplayer writes: Gary Clark, Jr. got chops like mutton. If you are not familiar with the upcoming TX-based artist just watch him catching multiple bodies on a cover of B.B. King‘s “3 O’Clock Blues” live at SoHo House in this special raw-dogs edition of Okayplayer TV (Dantana on the camera phone!). Then listen to the streaming tracks below from his EP Bright Lights (out now) and stay tuned for more on the cat people are calling the “saviour of the blues.”

    The Bright Lights EP is out now! Get it at your local record store or on tour.

    Brian Robbins reviews Bright Lights EP

    "Oh, my. Brace off and get ready, folks. What we have here may just be this decade’s blues guitar savior. No kidding.

    In just four songs (two with a full band and two with just his trusty Epiphone in hand), 26-year-old Gary Clark Jr. leaves no doubt but that he’s ready to move beyond the loving embrace of his home state of Texas and lay his bad-ass bluesy/soulful/psychedelic self on the rest of the world. If you were lucky enough to attend (or catch the DVD of) Eric Clapton’s 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival, then you’ve already had a little taste of what Gary Clark Jr. can do. AndThe Bright Lights EP offers up a little more."
