David Dondero, Ye Olde Shoppe, Skylar Gudasz & the Ugly Girls 

When: Fri., July 2, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $6

He's wild like the west wind, blowing aimlessly across the landscape for nearly 20 years, overturning rocks and makeshift shelters to expose the scattering creatures they hide. David Dondero's among the finest lyricists of his generation. He's penned paeans to the highway engineers, Rothko Chapel and the lonely, dispossessed dreamers that litter our world. He's The Transient (his fine 2003 album) heir to Townes Van Zandt and Leonard Cohen and progenitor of Conor Oberst, who adopted his warbling croon in the early '90s when Dondero was fronting South Carolina rockers Sunbrain. He's supporting his seventh solo album, #Zero With a Bullet, fueled by a soul beyond weathered and an attitude "too far out past jaded," as he confesses on the title track, the product of a lifetime spent grappling with undeserved anonymity. Do yourself a favor and show him some love. With Ye Olde Shoppe and Skylar Gudasz and the Ugly Girls. —Chris Parker
