Turnpike Troubadours, Mando Saenz 

When: Mon., June 3, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $15

The website bio for Oklahoma band Turnpike Troubadours includes an excerpt attributed to No Depression magazine that actually stems from the band's own promotional materials. (As co-founder and co-editor of that magazine, I just happened to notice.) A similar lack of credibility pervades the cookie-cutter alt-country of tracks like "Gin, Smoke, Lies," from the group's 2012 album Goodbye Normal Street. Far more worthwhile is opener Mando Saenz, a singer-songwriter from Nashville via Texas with a sharp eye for lyrical detail and a disarming voice that balances beauty with hurt, especially on standouts such as "Wrong Guy." His third album, Studebaker, is due out the day after this show and was produced by Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Andrew Bird, Mount Moriah). —Peter Blackstock
