Often times when people go to a concert, they want an escape from the day’s headlines and news. But at City Winery recently, that distraction was not possible. Duff McKagan showed up to the intimate venue on the night of his new solo album, Tenderness, release. With the album tackling current and relevant topics including opioid abuse, school shootings, sexual assault, and mental health and suicide, a night of mindless escapism was not on the table.

Shooter Jennings brought his raucous brand of outlaw country music to DC on Wednesday, rocking the house at City Winery.
He’s spitting image of his daddy, the legendary Waylon Jennings, right down to the prominent proboscis, albeit carrying a more slender figure. Touring behind his new album, Shooter, he’s picking up the torch his father carried, turning his back on Nashville and Hollywood, making music his way, as he expressed in the song “Solid Country Gold/The Outsider.”

Shooter, singer-songwriter Waylon Albright “Shooter” Jennings’ eponymous album, arrived at music retailers and streaming services via Low Country Sound and Elektra Records on Aug. 10. Shooter Jennings will bring his Bound Ta Git Down Tour to the City Winery on Wednesday, Aug. 22.
