Chuck Prophet perked my ears when he opened for Lucinda Williams at Party in the Park several years ago. The guitar gunslinger stole the show by performing one of the most memorable sets I've ever heard; every song was seemingly better than the last. Prophet writes top-notch tunes similar to the late Tom Petty but with a sound that's anchored in San Francisco rather than Gainesville. Prophet's roots lie in the West Coast Paisley Underground band Green on Red and he's a classic in his own right. Chuck Prophet and The Mission Express opens for G. Love & Special Sauce.
