James McCartney

When: Wed., April 24 2013

Of all the Beatles spawn who've followed in their fathers' footsteps, the best-known remains Julian Lennon, thanks to two Top 10 hits on which he sounded eerily like his father John. James McCartney, son of Paul, shares his own father's gift for undeniable pop melody and finely crafted songwriting; he's also racked up co-writing and musician credits on two of his dad's albums. But when it comes to his own music, the 35-year-old is a late-bloomer. In a Rolling Stone interview last week, he confessed to having played only 50 gigs so far, which hasn't stood in the way of bookings at this year's Coachella and Outside Lands festivals. The younger McCartney's full-length debut won't be out until May, but you can hear him live tonight at the Walnut Room (3131 Walnut St., Denver, Tickets for the 8 p.m., 21-and-over show are $15, with Chris Webb and Benny Marchant opening. — Bill Forman
