    Dianne Reeves

      There’s no dispute. Dianne Reeves is one of the great singers today—and we’re not qualifying this with “great jazz singer.” She’s coming to the Mahaiwe on Sunday night with a band including Gerald Clayton, Romero Lombardo, James Genus and Terreon Gully. Reeves’ most recent album, Beautiful Life—her first in five years—was released last January. [...]

    The Milk Carton Kids, Sarah Jarosz

      Sarah Jarosz is a multi-Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist whose music straddles folk and Americana; the Milk Carton Kids, also Grammy-nominated, are a young flatpicking harmony duo who have elicited raves from newcomers to the genre as well as the old guard.

    Drive-By Truckers

      Alt-country, Southern rock. Call it what you want, these guys have a song called “Shit Shots Count.” Which is awesome. Straight from the Deep South, the DBTs record in analog; their first two albums were called Gangstabilly and Pizza Deliverance—followed by a live album called Alabama Ass-Whuppin’ (released three times by three different record companies [...]

    Lewis Black

      Lewis Black is angry. Really angry. In fact, he’s angry by profession. The title of his latest tour, The Rant Is Due, is a pun on the various national political reckonings we face, and his preferred comic delivery system, the “rant.” Black became famous for his “Back in Black” segments on The Daily Show, [...]
