When: Fri., June 1 2012
When country-tinged Americana rocker and songwriter Will Hoge returns to Charleston, he does so with some serious accomplishments under his belt. The 39-year-old Nashville native, who has been compared to Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Son Volt, has been busy since his last time in the Lowcountry. He filmed an episode of CMT’s web show Concrete Country, performed at the Grand Ole Opry, and supported country star Dierks Bently on a national tour. In another recent adventure, Hoge and his band drove 14 hours back home two weeks after a flood devastated parts of Nashville to perform the final song during the nationally televised benefit concert stacked with artists like Keith Urban, Keb Mo, and Brad Paisley at the historic Ryman Auditorium. Hoge released his seventh album in 2011, the appropriately named Number Seven. This time around, Hoge will headline the ongoing Party at the Point series this Friday at 7 p.m.. Local rock/Americana quartet Southwood opens at 6 p.m.
