If you like your songs served up with a twist of heartache and a whole lot of Americana soul, Bob Harp is your bartender. The San Franciscan musician is making his way down to Culver City on Saturday to play at the Cinema Bar.

Harp grew up on the East Coast in the Washington, D.C., area, where he worked for an independent record store, among other odd jobs. This gave him the musical resources and inspiration he needed to pick up a guitar.

“That’s where I got my vinyl addiction. That exposed me to a lot of new music, and I heard a lot of things I had never thought to listen to before,” Harp said.
