Sarah Jarosz

Rozz-Tox

Wednesday, October 16, 8 p.m.

 

Singer/songwriter Sarah Jarosz plays Rock Island’s Rozz-Tox on October 16, and in recent years, the bluegrass, country, and folk musician has been the beneficiary of some truly excellent reviews. The Austin Chronicle called her “a songwriter of uncommon wisdom.” American Songwriter magazine wrote, “Jarosz invites us along with her into a growing sonic space of collaboration and artistry.” Paste magazine praised her gift for “conjuring soundscapes, erotic tableau, and enough tension to hold listeners transfixed.”

And my inner frustrated artist is now doing his damnedest to contain his resentment, considering that Jarosz wasn’t alive in the freaking 1980s.

Texas Hippie Coalition

Rock Island Brewing Company

Tuesday, September 24, 8 p.m.

 

The Southern-rock and heavy-metal musicians of Texas Hippie Coalition will play the Rock Island Brewing Company on September 24, and on the band’s TheOutlaw.com Web site, frontman Big Dad Ritch described the group’s hit song “Damn You to Hell” thusly: “It has such drive and intensity that it’s like a mixed-martial-arts event, like UFC pay-per-view, like someone being grounded and pounded on.”

As a suggestion of the Texas Hippie Coalition style, that description seems so close to perfect that I’m tempted to just end this piece right there.

Gretchen Peters

The Redstone Room

Friday, September 6, 8 p.m.

 

Singer/songwriter/instrumentalist Gretchen Peters, in describing the origins of her professional success, is quoted as saying, “Until I found the guitar, I was interested in anything expressive. By then words were a friend, but music was a tall dark stranger that I’ve been in love with, or maybe stalking, ever since.”

See? I told my lawyer there was no difference between love and stalking! But did he listen? No-o-o-o ... !
