Brendan Benson, Posies, Aqueduct 

When: Thu., Nov. 18, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $18-20

Playing with Jack White afforded Brendan Benson an opportunity any competitor would envy. It helped propel last year's My Old, Familiar Friends to No. 110 on the Billboard charts after a career of relative obscurity. It's welcome because Benson's a top-shelf pop craftsman of the type one rarely encounters (and the radio, sadly, no longer embraces). He displays exemplary command of the hook-laden rock and baroque pop pioneered by The Beatles, Zombies and Big Star. He's got a fine voice, a gift for keen couplets and an instinct for the subtle musical touches that distinguish pretty from simple earworm status. —Chris Parker
