Have Guitar, Will Travel

We knew that Matthew Reveles was too good a singer/songwriter to keep all to ourselves. The dude’s got a massive amount of talent coming out his ying-yang, and he’s been filling local venues like Modified Arts and Trunk Space with his rootsy, six-string strummings month after month. (Our personal favorites are the Dylan-esque cover of “Danny Boy” and the country-fried ditty “Mile of Defeat,” both of which can be found on Reveles’ most recent album, We’ll Meet Halfway.) The musician will be spending the first part of January touring a slew of Western states, spreading his folk-pop at such out-of-town venues as The Woodshed in Salt Lake City, The Hi-Dive in Denver, and Burt’s Tiki Lounge in Albuquerque.

Before he becomes the toast of said cities, Reveles will hold a tour-kickoff show at Yucca Tap Room.
