Son Volt, Peter Bruntnell

CRITIC’S PICK: Even though Jay Farrar’s longtime band just released its tribute to Tex-Mex legend Doug Sahm, they have oddly decided to follow that with the Tracetour, commemorating the almost 30 year anniversary of their 1995 debut. Son Volt’s first was arguably their finest, most focused work, especially given a constant stream of increasingly less interesting albums and snoozy shows over the decades. Singer/songwriter Bruntnell hasn’t released new material for a while, but his subtle, melodic, ringing Americana doesn’t age. — Hal Horowitz
From the venue:In celebration of the 28th anniversary of their album Trace, Son Volt will be performing that album in its entirety, in addition to a selection of songs by Doug Sahm. It’s gonna to be a hell of a set.
