Music Calendar

Oct. 4
Dirk Hamilton
Dirk Hamilton plays, at 8 p.m. Oct. 4,  at Alvas Showroom in San Pedro.
Hamilton released a slew of critically acclaimed records from the mid-70s into the 80s (“Meet Me at the Crux” is considered a minor masterpiece) before leaving the music industry behind to counsel troubled teens.
He never really stopped though, quietly releasing 13 more albums since 1989 and becoming something of a star in Italy. He has rock and roll passion, razor sharp wit and the poetic musings of someone who has seen it all.
A poet and musician known for his uniquely intelligent lyrics and passionate performance style, Hamilton creates music that can’t be pigeon-holed into one genre or another. So indie rock, alt-rock, roots music, americana and folk-rock are often used. For his lyrics and performance style he is most often compared to Dylan, Van Morrison and John Hiatt.
Tickets are $25.
