WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Willie Nile with Jefferson Gizzard

Saturday • Southgate House Revival

Americana has tended to be a home for Alternative Country performers with Southern or Western roots, and also introspective Folk troubadours who favor a quiet, often-acoustic approach.   

Basia Bulat

Nov. 10 • MOTR Pub

Bulat's latest album, Tall Tall Shadow, has fans and critics alike buzzing with excitement, from the album’s dynamic range of more energetic, Rock-tinged arrangements and heart-rending quietude to Bulat’s powerful yet vulnerable voice, an effective blend of Tracy Chapman and Florence Welch, to lyrics that are slightly more enigmatic and less narrative than her previous releases.  

Freedy Johnston

Oct. 30 • MOTR Pub

 There are few better examples of the injustice of the term “one-hit wonder” than Freedy Johnston. Although he fits the description with his lone hit single, 1994’s “Bad Reputation,” his output before and after his one ubiquitous smash has been every bit as deserving of commercial acceptance.   

David Bromberg Band

Oct. 10 • 20th Century Theater

Bromberg may be the most famous nobody in music, but he’s somebody you can’t afford to miss.  

The Shook Twins

Oct. 7 • MOTR Pub

Hailing from the wilds of Idaho and now based in the teeming weirdness of Portland, Ore., identical twins Katelyn and Laurie Shook comprise half of the Shook Twins, their truthfully billed acoustic Folk outfit.  

Shovels & Rope

Sept. 24 • Southgate House Revival (Sanctuary Room)

 One spin through O’ Be Joyful provides plenty of evidence as to what keeps drawing the faithful and converting the uninitiated. Ranging from twangy Folk to amped-up Country to full-bore Americana stomp, Shovels & Rope channel John Doe and Exene Cervenka channeling Timbuk 3 channeling Johnny Cash and June Carter.

In a little less than two years, Ryan Spencer and Adam Pressley have gone from a potential career disaster to having one of the most acclaimed albums of the year in the form of Wormfood, their debut as Jamaican Queens.   

Angel Olsen

Aug. 25 • MOTR Pub

Olsen’s full-length debut, Half Way Home, is an impressive showcase for her evocative, gothic-tinged Folk songs, which bring to mind a female Roy Orbison doing Moon Pix-era Cat Power covers.    

Joe Pug

Aug. 25 • Whispering Beard Folk Festival

It’s heartwarming that, in an age when new musicians jumpstart their careers via hokey TV talent shows and gimmicky YouTube videos, Folk/Americana singer/songwriter Joe Pug has chosen a different way.
