Patrick Sweany will be playing at 7 p.m. Friday in the Los Alamos National Bank parking lot as part of the Gordons’ Productions and Los Alamos County’s Summer Concert Series.
I caught Sweany on the phone just as he was cruising down I-80 in the middle of Nebraska. Since his gig in Omaha, he’d been pulled over a couple of times by the cops. He figured they saw a long haired guy driving a beat up van and wanted to check things out. The cops didn’t find any drugs. No sex either. Just three guys listening to rock and roll.
Sweany, Brad Porter, drums; and Taylor Belling, bass; have been touring to promote their newest CD, “Every Hour is a Dollar Gone.” Sweany wrote all the songs and the Black Keys produced it.
“It shows the direction I’m going,” he said. “It’s a blend of blues, country and rock, but it’s the overlaying honesty – earthiness – that I’m most proud of.”
