Marshall Crenshaw is really much more than his extensive catalog of catchy songs, his inimitable voice, and his jaw-dropping guitar work. And even though he once played a fake John Lennon in Beatlemania, a fake Buddy Holly in the 1987 biopic La Bamba, and wrote the title track for the fake biopic Walk Hard, Crenshaw is every bit an American original. Now, 32 years after the debut of what Rhino Records once called the "überperfect pop record," Crenshaw's music still pops with the same rootsy authority as it did back when record albums were the preferred delivery system of rock 'n' roll and a tweet was a tweet.
To someone familiar with the music of the Bottle Rockets and Marshall Crenshaw, the idea of them playing together — not merely sharing a bill — might come across as an improbable pairing certain to pique some interest.
