People like classic rock. If they didn’t, there wouldn’t be so many cover bands playing the cherished nuggets of FM radio gold. Problem is, with so many people reliving the glories of the past, who’ll write the tunes that tribute acts will cover in the future? One of them is Gray Gurkin. With a sound that borrows liberally from the crowd-pleasing catalogs of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty and John Mellencamp, Gurkin and the Black Concert Tees use the template to craft their own lighter-in-the-air compositions. No doubt, it’s a throwback, but it’s one that uses another man’s throat to find ways to their own voice. Tunes such as the countrified “Painted Pony” and arena rockers “Scared Smart” and “Matchbook” are pre-disco, ’70s fist pumpers born in the wrong era. Gurkin and the Black Concert Tees play Saturday, Feb. 28, at Crossroads Coffee and Ice Cream. The music starts at 8 p.m. Free. crossroadsrva.com.
