Orange County rock ‘n’ roller J.P. McDermott knows his fundamentals—in fact, when it comes to his music, he gets right back to rock’s first light in the mid-50s, when country and R&B big-banged into something raw and maybe even frightening, at least to stalwart Chamber of Commerce types. You know the score: revved-up guitar, propulsive rhythm and probably a certain kind of hiccup in the vocals and a couple lines in the lyrics that get to right to the legal limit of scandalousness. McDermott is known as a Buddy Holly historian, but here he’ll be presiding over a wide-ranging romp through rockabilly and adjacent genre mutations. Dress appropriately and win prizes, get a free drink if you donate a pair of new socks, and note that all proceeds from the show go to charity.
