Keith comes Real-Phonic’s way thanks to the urging of two previous performers, Will Sexton and Amy LaVere, with whom he has a country-duo side project, Motel Mirrors. Keith said Thursday that Sexton and LaVere “rave about the show, and everyone on it,” and that he was excited that his first visit to the Twin Cities would be in a well-organized setting.
He also brings a reverence to his own city’s musical history. “Memphis Circa 3AM” was produced by the late Sun Records guitarist, Roland Janes, who helped make “Flyin’ Saucers Rock & Roll” a rockabilly touchstone, and its vinyl pressings were made possible through use of vintage Stax Records equipment.
Coleman, who has attended about 10 Real-Phonic shows, was not familiar with Keith. But that, he said, was the value of Real-Phonic: the thrill of discovery.
