Hammersmith Lyric Theatre, May 6-7
Former frontman for ace US indie country-rock band, Whiskeytown, Adams is one of the great young troubadors of the alternative music scene. Heartbreaker Adams first solo album, released in September, last year, caused an immediate and sustained critical and commercial stir. Whiskeytowns forthcoming third album Pneumonia is a barnstorming affair thats bound to reap similar acclaim. In a class of writers and performers that includes Cobain and Westerberg, Adams is the real deal. Time then to catch one of Rocks hottest young stars as he cuts loose on a rare U.K. solo tour.
