Birdsmell, Bryan Cates (Back Room) 

When: Sat., Nov. 2, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $20
Under his unfortunate solo handle, Band of Horses leader Ben Bridwell dips into well-trod Americana and does little to differentiate himself (or warrant a $20 ticket), his other band's notoriety notwithstanding. In Birdsmell, his thin voice falters without the Horses' swells of distortion and reverb, and his fluid song structures drift downward rather than upward and outward. It's not all a loss, though; show up early for a rare set from the undeservedly obscure country-soul songsmith Bryan Cates. —Bryan C. Reed
