Josh Ritter & the Royal City Band, The Felice Brothers 

When: Sun., May 12, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $24

One of the most likable and charming singer-songwriters working today, Josh Ritter is a hopeful romantic, an inquisitive observer who's seen enough to know that individual moments of compassion can brighten the hue of existence. (See "The Temptation of Adam," his 2007 masterpiece.) As he's aged, Ritter has sharpened his pop acumen, gathering all of that exuberance into three-minute bursts that crowd the radio in an imagined parallel universe. That's the chief charm of his latest, the ever-wise and texturally efficient The Beast in Its Tracks. With The Felice Brothers. —Grayson Currin
