Derek Evry

Americana, folk, rock

Fridays are a magical time where we can slough off our workplace attire and be the rock ’n’ rollers we know we are deep down inside. And this Friday, you can do that by catching the “melody-conscious, guitar-driven power pop” of Arlington, Va.’s Derek Evry at the Sparrow in Park Circle. “I draw most of my inspiration from my mood at the time,” Evry says, and judging by his songs, he must be mildly annoyed quite a bit but really happy about it. “If I want to hear a song, and I don’t have it, I write it. It’s almost like I’m using boredom to cure boredom.” Evry is currently touring in support of his third album, Here’s to Better Misery. If you’re on the lookout for a small record store-supporting, guitar-wielding vegan, Derek Evry is your man. —Tamara Younkins FRIDAY
