Pokey LaFarge and the South City Three

If Pokey LaFarge's bio claimed that he landed in St. Louis via some magical, time-traveling boxcar that plunked him on a set of rusty railroad tracks alongside the Mississippi River, you could almost believe it. As it stands, the story of how LaFarge arrived in our city isn't nearly so whimsical: The ex-Hackensaw Boys member met the cats at Big Muddy Records (which put out last year's Beat, Move, and Shake LP) in North Carolina and liked the Lou and its people enough to move here. Either way, the singer and guitarist — who's also spent a lot of time in Louisville, Kentucky — brings with him an old-timey sensibility and a love of prewar blues music.
