When Ian Moore turns 50 next week in his adopted home of Seattle, he’ll be at the major-league ballpark Safeco Field for a big Pearl Jam show there. But before the big five-oh hits, he’s made a trip back to his hometown of Austin for shows Friday and Saturday at Antone’s, the club where he largely cut his teeth as a teenage blues-guitar prodigy.

His new EP “Toronto” came out in May on Last Chance Records, which is also gearing up to release a 7-inch single of Moore covering Doug Sahm’s classic “At the Crossroads.” We’re told that Sahm’s son, Shawn Sahm, will be at Antone’s for the Saturday night show to join Moore onstage for the tune.

In the meantime, give a listen: Here’s an Austin360 exclusive premiere of the track.
