The J.D. McPherson train rolls into Long Beach’s Alex’s Bar

Stepping into Alex’s Bar in Long Beach to see Oklahoma rocker J.D. McPherson was like walking into another world. We were actually at a train station, standing on the platform filled with bellowing steam. Hardshell suitcases in delicately gloved hands rushed to meet pompadours and rolled jeans.
