Clint Black

Clint Black has sold more than 20 million albums worldwide and charted nearly two dozen No. 1 singles including “A Better Man,” “Killin’ time,” “Nothing But The Taillights,” “Like The Rain” and “When I Said I Do.” He is one of the most successful artists in Country music history having written, recorded, and released more than 100 songs, with nearly one third achieving “hit song” status on Country radio.

In addition, Black was inducted into the cast of the Grand Old Opry in 1991 and earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1996.

Randall Bramblett Band
9:00pm at Isis Music Hall
($15 adv / $18 DOS)

Elements of pop, soul, blues, and the sounds of the church combine with Randall Bramblett’s often wistful, beautifully conceived lyrics highlight his roots-based tunes. “Some of the words come from dreams. I do meditations in the morning and write in a journal,” he says. His lyrical strength is mixing unusual thematic concepts with dry humor.

Father John Misty
w/ Weyes Blood
8:00pm at Thomas Wolfe Auditorium
($25.50 - $45.50)

He sounds and acts a bit like solo-era John Lennon, Scott Walker, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, and Dory Previn, while taking a few cues from Woody Allen, Kurt Vonnegut, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Muhammad Ali.

The Church
w/ The Helio Sequence
8:00pm at The Grey Eagle
($20 / $99 VIP)
Tickets now on sale

the church’s accidental signature tune, Under The Milky Way, is like a lighthouse on the brink of a continent forever to be discovered: 25 albums over 35 years and countless diversions that have almost destroyed them a dozen times, yet always reaffirm a mutual commitment to an uncompromising and unparalleled act of creation.

Sylvan Esso
w/ Helado Negro
8:00pm at US Cellular Center Arena
($32.50)

Sylvan Esso was not meant to be a band. Rather, Amelia Meath had written a song called “Play It Right” and sung it with her trio Mountain Man. She’d met Nick Sanborn, an electronic producer working under the name Made of Oak, in passing on a shared bill in a small club somewhere. She asked him to scramble it, to render her work his way. He did the obligatory remix, but he sensed that there was something more important here than a one-time handoff: Of all the songs Sanborn had ever recast, this was the first time he felt he’d added to the raw material without subtracting from it, as though, across the unseen wires of online file exchange, he’d found his new collaborator without even looking. Meath felt it, too. Schedules aligned. Moves were made. And as 2012 slipped into 2013, Sanborn and Meath reconvened in the unlikely artistic hub of Durham, N.C. A year later, their self-titled debut—a collection of vivid addictions concerning suffering and love, darkness and deliverance—arrives as a necessary pop balm, an album stuffed with songs that don’t suffer the longstanding complications of that term.

The Head And The Heart
w/ The Shelters
8:00pm at US Cellular Center Arena
($45-$65)

The Head And The Heart’s 2011 self-titled debut album captured a nascent but undeniable creative partnership between six strangers thrown together by little more than a shared love of music. It became one of Sub Pop Records’ best-selling debut releases ever, and rocketed the band to acclaim well beyond its then-home base in Seattle. The formative experiences that followed both on and off the stage heavily informed the 2013 follow-up “Let’s Be Still,” which continues to remind Russell of “the stale beer, bleach and potato chips from all the venues we saw once this became our livelihood.”

The Queers
w/ The Ataris & The Indoor Kids
9:00pm at The Grey Eagle
($15 adv / $18 DOS)

The Queers have been playing music and touring all over the world for almost 30 years now. They released a few records for Lookout! Records in the early '90s and then had a terrible stint with Hopeless in the late '90s, but afterwards switched to their favorite record label ever, Asian Man Records.

Crystal Castles
9:00pm at The Orange Peel
(18+, $20 adv / $25 DOS)
Tickets now on sale

Fusing lo-res electronic noise and pop hooks so effortlessly that it can seem accidental, Crystal Castles began as producer/multi-instrumentalist Ethan Kath’s solo project in late 2003. The band’s distinctive sound comes from a keyboard modified with an Atari 5200 sound chip. When Kath collaborated with singer Alice Glass on some songs in spring 2005, Crystal Castles’ lineup was complete.

Dinosaur Jr.
w/ Easy Action
8:00pm at The Orange Peel
(18+, $22 adv / $25 DOS)
Tickets now on sale

Over the last three decades, J Mascis’ songwriting has continued to pursue confusion, isolation and mis-communication as its main themes (which is one of the reasons he’s always been the artist-of-choice for so many misfits), but he has really worked on the craft of songwriting, and he’s constantly improving his ability to convey these feelings rather than merely inhabit them.

Emily Saliers (of The Indigo Girls)
Murmuration Nation Tour
8:00pm at The Grey Eagle
($17 adv / $20 DOS)

Thirty years into one of the most storied careers in popular music, Emily Saliers decided to record her debut album. "What's a 53 year old woman doing making her first solo record?" muses Saliers, best known as one half of the iconic duo Indigo Girls. "What compels someone like me to follow this strong attachment to rhythmic music?" Murmuration Nation answers those questions both passionately and profoundly. In this "post-fact" era in which we find ourselves living today, Saliers' fearless voice and insightful perspective feel more vital and relevant than ever before.

Presented by the RHS Community Foundation, this benefit concert will raise money for the future Reynolds Community Center in Canton, NC.

Shawn Colvin
8:00pm at Diana Wortham Theatre
(Premium Seating $70 / Regular Seating $50)

In an era when female singer-songwriters are ever more ubiquitous, Shawn Colvin stands out as a singular and enduring talent. Her songs are slow-release works of craft and catharsis that become treasured, lifetime companions for their listeners. As a storyteller, Colvin is both keen and warmhearted, leavening even the toughest tales with tenderness, empathy, and a searing sense of humor. This fall she celebrate the 20th Anniversary of her breakthrough album "A Few Small Repairs," featuring Colvin and a full band performing the album in its entirety alongside a variety of hits, personal favorites and surprises from her repertoire. Special guests Larry and Teresa Campbell will appear as support on the tour. A copy of Shawn Colvin's forthcoming album is included with your ticket order for this show.

Angel Olsen
w/ White Magic
9:00pm at The Orange Peel
(18+, $20 adv / $22 DOS)
Tickets now on sale

Angel Olsen's disarming, timeless voice is even more front-and-center than before in her new work, and the overall production is lighter. Yet the strange, raw power and slowly unspooling incantations of her previous efforts remain, so anyone who might attempt to pigeonhole Olsen as either an elliptical outsider or a pop personality is going to be wrong whichever way they choose - Olsen continues to reign over the land between the two with a haunting obliqueness and sophisticated grace.
