Music in the Gardens series with JKutchma & the Five Fifths 

When: Wed., June 5, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12, free for 12 & under

In Red Collar, Jason Kutchma sang rock 'n' roll anthems about the constant struggle for self-reliance in a world of routines and bosses, responsibilities and machines. Quit your job and start a band, he insisted both in songs and deeds. (The members famously quit their largely stable jobs to hit the road hard.) Red Collar's output has slowed, but Kutchma continues to live his creed under his own name and with his alternately rollicking and smoldering Five Fifths. He's now releasing two versions of a 10-song set called Sundown, USA, a mix of melancholy reflections and horizon-line hopefulness played solo on one album and with the newly aggressive Five Fifths. As a songwriter and bandleader, Kutchma has remained interesting because he's held fast to that ideal of independence—start with strong songs, and let them work their wonder.—Grayson Currin
