Sunday night I met up with my buddy Toby and his lady Jessica at The Independent. I think it’s one of my favorite venues to see live music in San Francisco. The event was Unknown Hinson live in concert. Imagine Vegas-era Elvis combined with Dracula and it only begins to describe him. Unknown is a wicked guitar player and a good singer. Stylistically, he and his band are a mixture of country-western, rockabilly and hard rock.
here’s a photo i shot:
Unknown is most widely known as the voice of Early the Appalachian Mud Squid in Cartoon Network’s Squidbillies cartoon. Instead of an opening band they showed a couple episodes of the show. Unknown rocked the house for nearly 2 hours. He doesn’t tour on the west coast often, but I hope he comes back real soon! Don’t forget to check out: unknownhinson.com
