Kasey Anderson, Peter Ames Carlin


Skyline Tavern
Sat., July 2, 7 p.m. 2016 21+

In July 2014, Northwest musician Kasey Anderson was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to federal fraud charges. The fraud? Anderson faked a benefit concert and album for the West Memphis Three and bilked potential investors out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, falsifying bank records, impersonating high-profile music industry types, and promising contributions from artists like Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam along the way. But before he went to jail, Anderson was one of the most promising roots-rock musicians in the Northwest, a charismatic performer with a perfectly raspy voice and a knack for a killer tune. Anyway, it appears Anderson is now out of prison and again playing live. An online event page for tonight's gig at Skyline Tavern is headlined "Knocking the Rust Off," and Anderson writes: "I'll be playing some tunes for the first time in a while." Joining him is Peter Ames Carlin, the Portland journalist who has penned biographies of Brian Wilson, Paul McCartney, and, most recently, Springsteen. BEN SALMON
