Steve Poltz Live at The Virgil with Spike McGuire!

August 9 @ 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm PDT

$25.00 – $40.00
Get ready for an unforgettable night of music at The Virgil on August 9th! We’re thrilled to welcome back the incredibly talented Steve Poltz, known for his captivating performances and charismatic stage presence.
With a cult following that includes fellow musicians, regular folks, and festival goers who stumble onto his performances, there’s no common denominator to Steve Poltz’s fans. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and raised in San Diego, CA, Steve toured and recorded with San Diego cult favorites The Rugburns (they still play annual sold-out reunion shows). It was through his creative partnership with Jewel that he vaulted into the national spotlight, co-writing her multiplatinum Billboard Hot 100-busting smash, “You Were Meant For Me,” and continues to work with her to this day.

Over the years, the Nashville-based troubadour has built a fascinating solo catalog, earmarked by his debut, One Left Shoe, Dreamhouse, Folk Singer, and 2019’s Shine On. No Depression crowned him, “A sardonic provocateur with a lighthearted acoustic-driven wit, suggesting at times a sunnier, less psychedelic Todd Snider, or maybe a less wan, washed Jackson Browne,” while the Associated Press dubbed him “part busker, part Iggy Pop and part Robin Williams, a freewheeling folkie with a quick wit and big heart.”

Among other collaborations, GRAMMY-winning bluegrass phenom Billy Strings tapped him to co-write “Leaders” on 2021’s Renewal, and he’s co-written with Molly Tuttle, Sierra Hull, Nicki Bluhm, Oliver Wood, and even Mojo Nixon. He’s resumed his tour schedule, and when he comes to your town, he’ll say, as he does every night, “This is the best show I’ve ever played.” And hell, maybe it just is.

Kicking off the night is local favorite Spike McGuire, whose dynamic performance will set the perfect tone for an incredible evening.
