An Acoustic Solo Citizen Cope Show at the Capitol Theatre Tomorrow

April 3rd, 2015

Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Clarence Greenwood has been doing business as Citizen Cope since the ’90s. But after his major-label debut on Dreamworks in 2002, Cope further made a name for himself in buying out his contract and self-producing the follow-up, the eclectic The Clarence Greenwood Recordings (stream it below), filled with roots, rock, reggae, dub and hip-hop. Now a decade later, Citizen Cope (above, doing a solo rendition of “Bullet and a Target” live in the Bing Lounge) is known for his high-energy live shows, done solo or with a full band. And tomorrow night at the Capitol Theatre he’ll perform an intimate solo acoustic show. (Plus, it’s for a good cause with $1 of each ticket sold going to Turnaround Arts to purchase musical instruments for middle schoolers in Lame Deer, Mont.—a community on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation. Lame Deer is part of Turnaround Arts, a President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities program that uses arts education to help students succeed.)
