WFUV at SXSW: JD McPherson

Oklahoma's JD McPherson started out as a visual artist but bounced into becoming a musical one. His retro style hearkens back to the R&B-slash-rock and roll of 60 years ago, but his edge is that of a guy who grew up listening to Zep and The Clash. His video for "North Side Gal" got him his record contract -- here he plays the tune for us at the Hotel San Jose in Austin.
