This is the definition of “In yo face, son!” Don’t know exactly why this strange, Twain-like character decided that the best time for him to showcase his slide guitar skills (or, apparent lack there of) was during a Derek Trucks concert. But, to each his own misery, right? Enjoy!

This dirty hipster has spent the bulk of his adult life trying to sort which music he likes and doesn’t like. At a certain point in 2009 he noticed that his increasingly-stringent filtering process seemed to be limiting his taste rather than cultivating it.
