Howe Gelb, Jeff Crawford 

When: Wed., May 19, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $5

For a quarter century, Southwestern songwriter, bandleader and tastemaker Howe Gelb has been one of music's most consistently prolific and profound voices. Whether with the distorted spectral twang of Giant Sand, the dichotomous rustle and hustle of his solo albums or the brilliant collaborative one-off Arizona, Amp & Alternator, Gelb has long been a savant of space, tone and time. He warps country-rock like the sun bends a stack of vinyl on a summer day, and he combines impulses—of the country troubadour and the mystical poet, of a punk rocker and a Nashville acolyte—like a magnate of postmodernity. Jeff Crawford, who plays bass, organ and production roles in a half-dozen local bands, opens with his sturdy pop-rock songcraft. —Grayson Currin
