Doug & Telisha Williams 

When: Fri., June 18, 7 p.m. 2010
Price: $10

Doug and Telisha Williams paint portraits of small-town America with their songs. The unemployed look to Walmart for jobs. Churchgoers are seduced by bars. The more adventurous try to run away. There's even a chilling ballad from the perspective of a murdered girl. The husband-wife duo makes simplified notions of small towns messier with each song. Broadly country tunes vary as much as their characters: defiant, exuberant, contemplative. Doug's acoustic and electric guitar playing pushes songs forward as Telisha slaps the upright bass. But it's Telisha's clear voice that tells the tales as much as the lyrics, delivering words with a world-weary twang. —Andrew Ritchey
