Tonight is the night for those who would have been gearing up for Langerado this week to forget about the defunct festival and revel in a somehow-still-undergroundish artist who would have fit perfectly in the jam festival's earlier years. Clarence Greenwood, aka Citizen Cope, brings his breezy brand of acoustic lounge rock to Fort Lauderdale tonight at the Culture Room. Equal parts romantic and political, Citizen Cope has a Jack Johnson type feel to his music, but delivers a more poignant message to his ever growing fanbase. Grab a couple fistfuls of your intoxicant of choice, as Cope is often late in starting his sets, and enjoy a night of political musings set to acoustic melodies.
