Closing out the 2013 season with a bang is Chuck Prophet & The Mission Express. Chuck Prophet is an American singer-songwriter, guitarist and producer. He first achieved notice in the American psychedelic/desert rock group Green on Red, with whom he toured and recorded in the 1980s. He has also recorded a number of solo records, and gained prominence as a musician and songwriter. Chuck Prophet shapes his restless career with inimitable subtle flair: a vivid parade of razor-edged one-liners camouflaged in a slack-jawed drawl, songs about heartbreak and everyman heroism, drenched in twisted lines of rude Telecaster. National television appearances include Austin City Limits, as well as Letterman and Carson Daly. His music has increasingly been featured in film and television, most recently as the closing track to episode two of True Blood. A fitting finale to an extraordinary season!
