Popa Chubby plays final Bluesdays of summer on Tuesday

Popa Chubby plays the final Bluesdays show of summer on Tuesday in The Village at Squaw Valley.

The 11th Bluesdays season in The Village at Squaw Valley wraps up Tuesday with Popa Chubby.

He’s got chops, not a chopper, baby. A big man with a shaved head, goatee and tattoos, Popa Chubby looks like a biker, but he’s a bluesman. He desribes himself as “The Stooges meets, Buddy Guy, Motorhead meets Muddy Waters and Jimmy Hendrix meets Robert Johnson.”

“Since I’d grown up on Hendrix, Cream and Led Zeppelin, when I started playing blues in New York clubs I understood that the blues should be dangerous, too.” he said in a press statement. “It wasn’t just from playing in punk bands. Howlin’ Wolf and Muddy Waters were dangerous men. They’d cut or shoot you if they thought it was necessary, and Little Walter packed a gun and wouldn’t  hesitate to use it. That danger is a real part of the Blues and I keep it alive in my music.”

The free show starts at 6 p.m.
