mix of blues, soul, folk, and rock, 8 p.m.
Hip-hop folk-soul rocker Clarence Green is better known by his stage name, Citizen Cope, and thanks to songs like “Pablo Picasso” and “Bullet and a Target” — not to mention his laid-back vibes, Jamaican influences, heavy beats, and stellar lyrics — Green has earned a following among flip-flop rock fans, the jam-band circuit, and white-boy reggae aficionados. This week Green and his Citizen Cope cohorts will swing by the Music Farm as part of their summer East Coast tour. Citizen Cope is touring in support of his most soulful album yet, One Lovely Day. Without a doubt, this latest LP is likely to compose a significant portion of his set-list at the Music Farm. And if we had our druthers, Citizen Cope would play “Southern Nights,” where Green trades in the banging drumbeats for the tender piano. Oh, and the killer cover he did of Radiohead’s “Karma Police” from the Radiodread album. —Kalyn Oyer WEDNESDAY
