Amos Lee, Jessica Lea Mayfield 

When: Mon., Nov. 18, 7:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $39-46
With his 2011 album Mission Bell, Amos Lee turned the rather rare trick of taking largely unadorned but certainly polished folk-rock to the top of the Billboard 200. There were a few factors at work, including his hard touring, affable demeanor, string of decent albums and lousy competition for the No. 1 slot. But the key to Lee's rise overall is how undecided, non-divisive and simply pleasant his music is. He delivers all the familiar metaphors, plays all the expected chords and slips into the most common molds. He's easy to like, then, but very hard to love or hate. He's just there. Opener Jessica Lea Mayfield, who is at times brilliant, does not suffer the same complacence. —Grayson Haver Currin
