Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit, James McMurtry, Nick & the Babes 

When: Wed., Oct. 26, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $14.50-18

Jason Isbell probably can't wait until he escapes the shadow of those three prime-era Drive-By Truckers albums to which he contributed so he can establish himself in his own right. He's getting closer. His three albums since the 2007 split have found Isbell exploring life on his own like a college student, stepping outside his Southern country-rock background to diddle with stronger country, folk and pop. His latest, Here We Rest, often evokes a dusty Texas country vibe reminiscent of Hayes Carll. Though it's probably uncalculated, the overall effect has been to establish Isbell's bona fides more as a canny writer than a musician tied to a particular style. With James McMurtry and Nick and the Babes. —Chris Parker
