Downtown Sessions: Rod Gator at McCall Plaza
October 16, 2021 @ 7:30 pm
Years before launching his career as an internationally-celebrated southern songwriter, Rod Gator grew up in the Louisiana backcountry, making trips to his family’s crayfish pond while absorbing the sounds, stories, and swampy swagger of his surroundings.
With Muscle Shoals-worthy grooves, overdriven amplifiers, sharp storytelling, and Gator’s unique blend of spoken-word delivery and southern crooning, Gator doesn’t just sing; he rasps, twangs, talks, and howls, dipping into his background as an actor for a larger-than-life approach that’s every bit as evocative as the songs’ arrangements.
Come on out for this free outdoor concert in the heart of Downtown Plano Arts District, with an opening performance by local favorites Danni & Kris.
