At 26, guitarist Gary Clark Jr. had his coming-out party when he held his own alongside BB King, Eric Clapton, and Jeff Beck at the 2010 edition of the Crossroads Guitar Festival. Raised on John Lee Hooker and Lightnin Hopkins, the Austin-based shredder mixes his blues upbringing with elements of hip-hop and soul. Out touring in support of his long-anticipated debut via Warner Bros, Blak and Blu, Clark has been compared to Jimi Hendrix, and turns out mesmerizing performances that even garner the Presidential stamp. Tonight, Clark makes a stop in Brooklyn to help raise money for the Superstorm Sandy Relief Fund for Staten Island. Canned food and household items are being collected at the show.
