Matthew Ryan & The Northern Wires, The 8:59's 

When: Tue., May 12, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $6-$8
Since he emerged in the initial alt-country rush of the late ’90s, Pittsburgh-based singer-songwriter Matthew Ryan has earned a passionate fan base and critical praise while never finding breakout success. The plaintive, working-class ethos of his songs echoes Springsteen and Westerberg, while his jagged tenor has a timbre and urgency all its own. Last year’s Boxers was an especially solid outing, ranging from heartland chug to a powder-keg elegy for a buddy with ALS. —David Klein
