Jason Boland & the Stragglers

Jason Boland & the Stragglers, Jason Eady 

When: Sat., Oct. 12, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $15-18
Jason Boland is a former fratboy who beat back a bout with alcoholism and outlasted an almost-catastrophic injury to his voice to land as one of the most intriguing songsmiths on the fringes of country music. On his latest, Dark and Dirty Mile, he trots into the final verse of the lead title track with this stunning new aphorism: "Finally I've realized that knowledge better make you wise/ Or all the knots you learn to tie will leave you in a ball." Boland has been dropping clever and instructive turns of phrase like that throughout much of his career, but after flirtations with rock and alt-country, he's finally settled into a comfortable and confident outlaw outpost. More than just another accent backed by fiddle and steel, Boland's a survivor with a pen, a pad and some lessons to unload. —Grayson Currin
