Gary Clark Jr.'s train pulls in at Maverick Music Festival

Posted By on Sun, Mar 24, 2013 at 10:47 AM

The first edition of the Maverick Music Festival was one of those events that just don't happen too often in SA: a first-time music fest with top headliners, great sound, a packed house (it was sold-out but not oversold, so you could move around without having to say "excuse me" 2,000 times), a very reasonable wait between acts (the transitions were fast, fast, fast), and solid sets by — at least — those in the main paid night stage (Henry + The Invisibles, Arum Rae, Girl in a Coma, Toadies and Clark).

Following Toadies, Clark started strong, as usual, with "When My Train Pulls In" (from Blak and Blu) and "Don't Owe You a Thang" (from the Bright Lights EP).

It was another superb set from Clark and an impressive debut by a festival that set a very high standard for itself and other promoters who may want to start something similar (good luck).

Maverick Fest is just like SA: big enough and cozy enough. Welcome to SA, and thanks.
