Ex-pugilist Paul Thorn takes the stage at Jim Porter's on June 29, his ninth stop in Derby City since 2005. He has a new CD, What The Hell Is Goin On?, on which he covers other writers' tunes, but which, he says, is still a Paul Thorn record through-and-through. His music is an acquired taste, especially if you like your music with a spritz of irony. Given the regularity of his visits, he should have a good crowd. Check with Porter's for ticket info.
