Those of you hankering for some rough-hewn, folky blues are in luck: Jake Lear is playing at the Talkhouse tonight. Though Lear is but a youg'un, he plays his guitar like an established veteran --think Stevie Ray Vaughn or Jeff Tweedy. His voice ain't shabby either, gravely and wistful a la Dylan, if somewhat less reedy. He's got a tight band with an excellent drummer and a harmonica player, so we're not surprised about the stellar concert reviews he's garnered. Click here to sample his goods. Tickets are only $10, so get them while you can!
