CHUCK PROPHET RECORDED Night Surfer, his most recent release and 13th full-length album, in San Francisco. It’s “about a path forward, about looking around and imagining where we’ll be in 20 years if we just follow that path,” the venerable rocker says. “And of course, you’ll find a persistent anxiety throughout; we live, after all, in anxious times.” Prior to these anxious times, Prophet’s music was covered by Heart and Bruce Springsteen and has been featured on shows like True Blood, Californication and Sons of Anarchy. Hear him at HopMonk Tavern in Novato on Sunday, July 17, as a part of the Cookout Concert Series.
