Mac Leaphart w/ Shake it like a Caveman, Ryan Bonner & The Dearly Beloved 

When: Thu., Oct. 15 2009
Price: $10
Local songsmith Mac Leaphart keeps super busy doing bar gigs, writing, and recording melodic original tunes. His latest recording is a track featured on the recently-released I Got Music compilation titled “When it Rains.” The last time The Tin Roof had him on stage was during the massive Beatles vs. Stones event in September. This Thursday, he returns with his full band for a set of classics and new material. “I am looking forward to this show — it’s some good bands and a good cause,” Leaphart says. Half of the proceeds benefit Share Our Suzy, a nonprofit organization that started out under the name Save Our Suzy in Columbia in the mid-2000s and started holding annual events to honor the late Suzy McGrane. Co-headlining the gig is Shake It Like a Caveman (pictured), the wild one-man band (a.k.a. Blake Burris) from N.C. Caveman draws plenty from the Delta sounds and rough city styles of R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, John Lee Hooker, with healthy doses of Jerry Lee Lewis and Jerry Reed as well. He gets a lot of cool noise out of a Fender six-string, a Peavey amp, a high-hat cymbal, two microphones (one made from a telephone receiver), and a bass drum held together with duct tape.
