The problem with trying to hang with Madonna is that the bitch flakes on everything. Just ask Eric Hutchinson. The American folk rock singer-songwriter of such hits as “Rock and Roll” and “Ok, It’s Alright With Me” signed on with Madonna’s Maverick Records in 2007 but wasn’t able to get a record out before the label folded. He was left to record and produce the album Sounds Like This on his own—luckily, everybody liked it a whole lot and he didn’t have to wear a cone bra, either. Now, years later and tons more famous (he’s friends with Kelly Clarkson and Perez Hilton), Hutchinson has unveiled his third album, Pure Fiction, and will perform it and a plethora of other original tracks live at the House of Blues during his Tell the World Tour.
