Posted By on Wed, Apr 3, 2013 at 11:40 AM

Gurf Morlix isn’t only the producer who helped deliver top albums for Lucinda Williams and others; he’s also a terrific songwriter and guitarist in his own right, with a sense of humor to boot. In his song “Your Sister,” he shares a story about getting a “blister” after sleeping with a friend’s sister. He has a song that just repeats the same name over and over. He has an album called Blaze Foley’s 113th Wet Dream. He sings about beer and spaceships in “Big Cheeseburgers and Good French Fries.” On top of all this, Gurf Morlix plays on Friday, April 5, at the Sebastopol Community Center Annex. 390 Morris St., Sebastopol. 8pm. $25—$27. 707.823.1511.
