Joe Pug & the Hundred Mile Band, Rayland Baxter, BJ Barham 

When: Thu., July 22, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $8

Singer-songwriters with harmonicas, acoustic guitars and slightly grainy voices will inevitably be compared to Dylan. It doesn't help Joe Pug's case that his cutting lyrics range from the personal to the extremely political, as on the perfect "Bury Me Far (From My Uniform)." While favoring rootsy twang over pop-soul sheen, his songs

do bear a keen sense of melody, reminiscent of the '90s folk-pop of Shawn Mullins or, say, Eagle-Eye Cherry. BJ Barham steps away from the shit-kicking roots rock of his band, American Aquarium, to open with a solo set. The quieter Barham should allow his storytelling to come to the fore. Rayland Baxter rounds out the evening of songwriters. —Andrew Ritchey
