Big Thief, Sam Evian (Back Room) 

When: Tue., Jan. 17, 9 p.m. 2017
Price: $10-$12

It might not have topped any music publications' year-end lists, but Masterpiece was still one of the best indie rock records of 2016. Led by Adrienne Lenker, the Texas quartet covers significant emotional ground on its compact thirty-seven-minute debut. The title track is stunning in its even-keeled charm, driven by guitar riffs that crash like waves against the beach, while "Real Love" is a harrowing song about abuse, with stark, angular guitar solos that raise the hair on the back of your neck. Even in lighter moments, such as the airy, cascading "Velvet Ring," Lenker and company pack power into every note. Sam Evian, the dreamy new pop-rock project of Celestial Shore's Sam Owens, opens. —Allison Hussey
