Jackson Browne, Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams 

When: Wed., Oct. 7, 7:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $49-$99
From his emergence in the early ’70s as the golden boy of the West Coast singer-songwriter demimonde, Jackson Browne distinguished himself as a versatile and gifted writer. He was capable of writing hymn-like melodies (“Rock Me on the Water”) and gorgeous introspective folk rock (“Late for the Sky”). And, to paraphrase one of his song titles, that boy could sing. By the end of the decade he was at his peak as an FM radio king whose solemn pronouncements occasionally grew heavy-handed (“Disco Apocalypse,” anyone?). He went down easy with a generation yet to be galvanized by greed in the ’80s. Browne has long addressed political issues; his most recent LP cover is a haunting image from the 2010 Haiti earthquake. But he’s never lost the cheekiness that possessed him to write “Redneck Friend,” a rollicking double-entendre-fest that puts “Dick in a Box” to shame. —David Klein
