About Pokey LaFarge in Concert

The Rust Belt has changed, now that the country is deindustrialized and unions are busted up. It’s all happening here in the Midwest. It’s a newer kind of America now, the bread basket.

I think Midwesterners eat too much humble pie. Pokey Lafarge talking to Rolling Stone magazine. Frank Lee & Allie Burbrink special guest opener.
