Bart Davenport joins semi-acoustic live music showcase

It’s been said of the East Bay’s Bart Davenport that he’s “a troubadour who wears his passionate love of West Coast pop on his sleeve.” Songs by Emitt Rhodes, Harry Nilsson and Paul McCartney are his touchstones; his fourth solo album, “Palaces,” on the San Francisco-based Antenna Farm label comes Sept. 9. His promoters say, “The album balances a sunny vibe with a streak of melancholy and subtly echoes the sound of yesterday’s AM radio hits.” Davenport says, “I often feel the sentiments and moods in an oldies tune are much closer to my own.”

Of “Palaces,” he adds, “It has the kind of real, warm sound you can only get using vintage analogue equipment. Making a record with that kind of gear in 2008 is like driving a vintage car straight through every red light and into the future.” He plays solo tonight at the Make Out Room, 3225 22nd St., San Francisco. Moomaw opens at 9 p.m.; Davenport plays at 10 p.m. and the Mumlers play at 11 p.m. Tickets are $8. Call (415) 647-2888 or visit www.makeoutroom.com.
