Poor Player (Live Music)Homegrown Motor City Indie folk Americana born of an excess of beverages, Poor Player is a four piece band that takes to the stage with barrel house rambles, neo Dustbowl yodels, and a hopped up grab bag of American riddles and laments. Saluting the guy flying a sign beside the highway exit, zigzagging through the post-industrial prairie, Poor Player is all about finding the roots beneath the rubble, the green beneath the ruin, the country blues in the pothole concrete, the folk in the f***d up, and the beauty in the Billy Dee Williams billboards.
