Justin Townes Earle

Singer Justin Townes Earle is stopping through town next week to support his new album Nothing's Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me released by Chicago's Bloodshot Records. Earle's music is a mix of Delta blues, country, folk and Dixieland sounds. On stage, his voice is sweet and soothing, with a toe-tapping beat and thoughtful lyrics. Read our interview with Earle from last spring.

Below is a video of him performing a song called "Rogers Park" off his 2010 release Harlem River Blues. It's about a certain Chicago neighborhood he once lived in. You can probably guess which one.

Justin Townes Earle, Park West, 322 W. Armitage Ave., Thursday, May 10, 7:30 p.m., $20, Tickets available now

Here is the official video for "Slippin' and Slidin'" from "Harlem River Blues."
