About this event

Casper Allen is coming to Eureka, California,

& he's bringing along Clyde McGee from the Bridge City Sinners!!!

Friday May 3rd at Synapsis Union (1675 Union in Eureka).

Friday May 3rd, up and coming Texas-born/ Colorado-based singer/songwriter that defies explanation; Casper Allen will be gracing the Synapsis stage with Clyde McGee (from the Bridge City Sinners and Clyde & The Milltailers) opening the show. Casper has gone viral several times with the Youtube sensation “Gems on VHS” with songs like Carving Creases, Paper Ships, Hollywood, Texas, and more. His unique voice and style grabs your attention and holds it to the flame, daring you to look away. He has very few comparisons, and almost no safe descriptions, save maybe “Texas Tom Waits” or “South Western Gothic," this is an artist we could catch on the way up, or on the way out of this world. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Doors at 7:30pm Fri May 3rd.

This is going to be an event like no other you'll find in this part of the state, and rarely do you see Artists of this magnatude in such an intimate event space. A troubadour in the truest and realest sense of the word, Casper Allen has a voice and style you experience as much as you hear. AND he's got an opener that would headline most shows in Clyde McGee of the Bridge City Sinners and Clyde and the Milltailers. 

Two amazing Artists on one helluva night, don't hear about it from someone else, get tickets today!

This is an absolutely un-missable show. One that Humboldt will talk about for years. 


Casper Allen:

Hailing from the furthest reaches of Texas (every which side of the state--but mostly North & West), Casper Allen left home early in search of experience, and, years later, his search continues. Detailing his experiences in the Texas songwriting tradition of his heroes Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, with a raw and aggressive bluesy vocal styling reminiscent of the Texas bluesmen Freddie King and Albert Collins, Allen explores themes of addiction, life on the road, and the ups and downs of a life well-traveled with a style developed busking on street corners and playing in dirty bars across the greater U.S.

After years of singing accompanied only by his own guitar, Allen has built a strong performing catalog of original songs and hidden gems of the American songbook. 
He spent several years accompanying Lost Dog Street Band as the opening act on their U.S. tours prior to the COVID-19 epidemic and embarked on several solo tours of the states performing with artists like Ryan Bingham, Vincent Neil Emerson, Matt Heckler, Arlo McKinley and countless others. 

He released the full length Volume 1 in August of 2020, followed by The Magnolia Sessions in February of 2021. Following the COVID-related cancellation of his scheduled performances, Allen found himself in both a legal battle with the State of Texas, related to his past life as a street criminal and addict and a separate legal battle between himself and his former management. Fortunately, Allen has come out on the other side with a new set of songs, a record on the way, a fruitful collaboration with videographer Patrick Lewey, and a newfound wealth of the wisdom that experience brings.

Currently residing in Colorado with his ol’ lady and a young daughter, he enjoys a newfound stability, a good cigarette, a long walk in the woods with his dogs Hank and Clyde, and chicken, generally of the fried variety.


Clyde McGee: 

Dark Folk and Americana. Banjo player for the Bridge City Sinners and Clyde and the Milltailers.

"Clyde has a voice that is incomparable to modern artists. His style on guitar, or banjo, when he is playing compliments his voice, and brings you back to a time when life was much more simple."  Punknews.com
