After Marcus King's Nov. 30 date at The Blue Note sold out, the Ninth Street venue added a second show on Dec. 3.

The move, seen more often in larger metropolitan markets, gives Columbia listeners a second chance to see the 27-year-old Southern rock phenom.

A Greenville, South Carolina native, King owns an ever-growing catalog. 2020's "El Dorado" earned him a Grammy nomination for best Americana album. His most recent effort, last year's "Young Blood" returned "the hotshot guitarist to the music that made his bones: big, thick blues-rock, saturated in volume and fuzz," AllMusic's Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote.

Vanderbilt University grad Meg McRee, an increasingly strong presence in the worlds of country and Americana, supports both shows. Tickets for the Dec. 3 date are $35-$50. Visit https://thebluenote.com/ for more details.
