        “A conservative,” Franklin Roosevelt said almost 70 years ago, “is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned to walk forward.” James McMurtry – work shirt tucked, fists clenched – turns those words into weapons on Just Us Kids. Think Steve Earle with an even more pointed, and sometimes sharper, vision. "The simple fact is that James McMurtry may be the truest, fiercest songwriter of his generation..." Stephen King. Ours for a night, don't miss him.
