Dave Alvin Rocks the Mystic Theatre

The article informs that touring to support his CD "Ashgrove," roots-rocker Dave Alvin blasted McNear's Mystic Theatre (Petakima, California) in late January, relying on the venue's engineer. For this show, Randy Teaford, the Mystic's chief engineer and production manager, mixed at front of house for the former Blasters guitarist. It is a little like mixing a train wreck, Teaford says. It is hard to believe that two nights prior to this gritty performance, Alvin cancelled a show due to laryngitis. But Alvin was in good guitar form at the Mystic, and Teaford had to keep an eye on the vocal fader.
