Langhorne Slim & the Law, Matrimony 

When: Sun., Oct. 2, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-12

Since dropping out of music school in the early '00s to open for the Trachtenburg Family Slideshow Players on a national tour, Langhorne Slim has experienced a slow, steady build. Along the way, his Dylan-inspired folk-blues has matured from rollicking wild-eyed fervor to something more measured and nuanced. With his fourth album, 2009's Be Set Free, he makes the transition from mere singer-songwriter to an artist. With producer Chris Funk (of The Decemberists), he explores intricate pop not far removed from Conor Oberst's approach on Wide Awake. He's generally high-spirited with a humble, genial charm, giving his performances the intimacy of a back-porch hootenanny. —Chris Parker
