Here’s two reasons why you don’t want to miss Gary Clark Jr. at the XPoNential Music Festival

Every year at the XPoNential Music Festival we introduce you to some new musicians. This year, one of those artists is Gary Clark, Jr. from Austin, Texas. Clark can sing some sweet R&B but mostly he’s a blistering blues and rock artist at heart. Check out the two videos below that from a live performance he did at Bardot in Hollywood, California. Clark recently signed to Warner Brothers records and he peforms on Friday, July 22nd with the North Mississippi Allstars Duo, Joseph Arthur, Citizen Cope, The Smithereens, and locals Nicos Gun, Johnny Miles and The Waywards. Purchase tickets to the festival here.
