Bobby Bare Jr., Will Johnson, Bosque Brown
On last year's From the End of Your Leash, Bobby Bare Jr. proved once and for all that the critical success of his first solo album was no fluke. With a sound combining country, blue-eyed soul and fuzzed-out rock, Bare hearkens back to the freewheeling experimentation of '70s singer-songwriters like Gram Parsons, but with a healthy dose of humor reminiscent of Bare's family friend and songwriting mentor Shel Silverstein. Live, he's even rowdier, spiking sets with covers by the Cars, the Who and Quiet Riot. Opening acts (and local treasures) Will Johnson and Bosque Brown make this show a must-see for fans of indie twang.
