Joe Pug, Field Report (Solo) (Back Room) 

When: Fri., April 24, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $13-$15
Joe Pug and Field Report are guys with acoustic guitars, sharing stories about disappointment, dejection and, at some points, hope in plaintive and earnest tones. Pug, though, tends to write in smoothed-out aphorisms, the experience of life reduced to fodder for a Hallmark card. But Field Report, the outlet for feelings-wrenching songwriter Christopher Porterfield, depends on the details, deploying memories of the moments where things fell apart to make his songs feel as vivid as a screenplay. You’ll either find his candor off-putting or arresting; stay with it long enough, and you’ll learn that it’s just honest. —Grayson Haver Currin
