Lyle Lovett & John Hiatt 

When: Thu., March 15 2012
Price: $32-82

Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt used to do this acoustic tour with compadres Guy Clark and Joe Ely; more recently, they've pared it down to a duo, losing a little of the variety but gaining some focus. It's not really a show supporting Lovett's new album, Release Me, which reflects his large-ensemble tendencies more than this stripped-down presentation can accommodate. Still, Lovett is a master performer in almost any setting, and if there's a more accomplished Americana songwriter than him over the past quarter-century, it may well be Hiatt, with whom he shares an innate understanding of the connective tissue between country and R&B. —Peter Blackstock
