Common Jack brings political folk songs to Mercury Lounge on 03.30

Common Jack brings political folk songs to Mercury Lounge on 03.30

NYC folkster Common Jack is playing at Mercury Lounge on March 30th, in support of Giant Stone. The Virginia-bred, New York-based guitar picker is a master of the sweet and the morally dissonant. On his most recent release from August of 2017, a song entitled "One Too Many Days," Common Jack laments the violent travesty that was the protests in Charlottesville, VA. Channelling The Avett Brothers, Conor Oberst and early Bob Dylan with gentle finger-picking and mournful harmonica, Common Jack's sentiment is one of deep frustration, but above all else, weariness. He's weary of the carnage, the hatred and the fallacies of monochromatic American civic pride, of which there seems to be no end in sight. He croons, "I heard a voice begin to shout that both sides are to blame/I never thought I'd argue about a Nazi USA." Listen to the track below, and don't miss Common Jack at Mercury Lounge on the 30th. - Ethan Ames
