Local Love: Joey Hebdo

Staff Writer
Columbus Alive

Artist: Joey Hebdo Song: "Cold in the West"

With this intimate acoustic falsetto jam, Joey Hebdo issues a reality check for anyone who pigeonholes him in the jam band/frat rock realm thanks to those dreadlocks he used to rock when fronting Blackcoin. Yeah, he still gets a bit hippie-dippy here — "Give your Zodiac a chance"(?) — but his demeanor suggests a man whose talents transcend such categorization. His whole oeuvre should be on display tonight when he appears alongside Jason Quicksall as part of Rumba Cafe's Cowtown Round series. Things ought to get started around 10 p.m. at 2507 Summit St.
