Joe Fletcher – 10/1 – Mercury Lounge (New York, NY)

Joe Fletcher Mercury LoungeJoe Fletcher is one of our favorite new musical discoveries. With his band The Wrong Reasons, the former high school English teacher presents a liquor-soaked take on Americana that’s equal parts Jay Farrar and George Jones. By himself, though, Fletcher can be just as powerful. We saw him do a solo set at this year’s AMA conference, and it was easily one of the highlights of the week. We’re going to be seeing him again as October opens with a Joe Fletcher performance at New York’s Mercury Lounge. Band of Heathens may be the headliner, but trust us: you’re going to want to get there early for the opening act. Read more about Joe Fletcher in our exclusive interview with him in the next issue of Elmore, coming soon.
