leave a comment »

Honeydripper is a:

look at the origins of rock ‘n’ roll in a small Alabama town in the ’50s, centered around a small juke joint owned by Danny Glover’s piano player Tyrone Purvis. The business has been slow and is in threat of being taken away from Tyrone if he doesn’t pay his back rent, but the club’s salvation comes in the form of Sonny, played by musician Gary Clark Jr., a young out-of-towner who shows up with his electrified guitar promising the wildest Saturday night the town has ever seen.
