PICK OF THE WEEK: Jason Isbell – Bluebird Theatre – Wednesday, September 4th

Jason Isbell 2

Why You Should Go: It has been a dozen years since Jason Isbell showed up at a party and left in the Drive-By Truckers’ van with two travel days to learn their songs. After 6 productive years with The Truckers, Isbell went out on his own and his solo career has seemed effortless since.  From Sirens of the Ditch (2007) to Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit (2009), through Here We Rest (2011) and last year’s Live From Alabama; these are loud records, unrepentantly southern, resplendent with careful songwriting. Songs which inspire and intimidate other musicians, and critics.

His most recent effort, Southeastern, is not a record Jason has made before, and not simply because the glorious storm and drama of his band, the 400 Unit, is absent. They will tour together; it’s not a breakup record, not an album of dissolving, but, rather, songs of discovery.  So get on down to the Bluebird Theater this Wednesday to catch this amazing singer-songwriter.
