YAKIMA, Wash. — If you’ve paid any attention to the local music scene the past few years you know Landon Wilkinson.
You may not know his name, but you know him as the lead guitarist and vocalist for The Village Musicians (who go by Village these days). He’s that kid — well, technically an adult these days — with all the charisma. He’s got this relentlessly upbeat stage presence that would be annoying except for how genuine it seems. It also helps that he’s just downright good at writing and playing solid, hooky pop songs.
I can’t help but like The Village Musicians (or Village or whatever). And that’s why Landon Wilkinson’s solo gig Friday at Naches Heights Vineyard, 2410 Naches Heights Road, is this week’s On Blog Top Pick. The show goes from 7 to 9 p.m. Admission is free.
