Nick 13, Brett Detar 

When: Wed., Sept. 21, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $12

I spent a lot of my 20th year listening to Tiger Army. Songwriter Nick 13's lonesome outlaw country ballads gave me goose bumps on early listens, while the scorching West Coast rockabilly element was fun but a tad shallow. Nine years later, I feel we've both matured a bit. On his eponymous solo offering, Nick 13 has wholly embraced his country side. "Cupid's Victim," originally a high-octane popabilly love song, gets a deservedly gorgeous honky-tonk shuffle rewrite. Juliana Theory's Brett Detar opens the show, following an unexpected phenomenon of early-'00s emo-pop frontmen setting out as singer-songwriters. Be pleasantly surprised: It works quite well. —Corbie Hill
