Concert preview: The Homeless Gospel Choir

Joel Oliphint

The Homeless Gospel Choir is Pittsburgh songwriter Derek Zanetti, whose acoustic-driven catalog falls somewhere between the ultra-personal idiosyncrasies of Daniel Johnston and the nasal folk-pop of Dolfish.

On "Armageddon," from 2014 releaseI Used to Be So Young, Zanetti takes on the role of a doomsday prepper, stockpiling guns, batteries and chicken-flavored ramen.

"The apocalypse is really bad this time," he sings. It's comical until he starts singing about "going back to the way things were in 1492" and nominating "Duck Dynasty" for president. Then the song becomes eerily prescient.(Safe bet)
