Fall Music Preview

Today, as it does every year in early September, The Boston Globe publishes it's comprehensive lineup of upcoming music and arts. Here are a few of my picks for the Boston area this Fall.

September 25- Paul Weller & Ian Moore @ Avalon, Boston
September 30- Hot Tuna Acoustic @ Narrows Center, Fall River
October 1- The Bad Plus @ Somerville Theatre, Somerville
October 3- Built to Spill @ Avalon, Boston
October 6- Daniel Lanois & Tortoise @ Somerville Theatre, Somerville
October 6- Alejandro Escovedo Orchestra @ Iron Horse, Northhampton
October 19- Henry Rollins Spoken Word @ Berklee Performance Center
October 23- Son Volt @ Paradise, Boston
October 27- The Mountain Goats @ Museum of Fine Arts, Boston
October 28- James McMurtry @ Johnny D's, Somerville
November 2- David Lindley @ Iron Horse, Northhampton
November 3- David Lindley @ Johnny D's, Somerville
December 10- Kelly Jo Phelps @ Narrows Center, Fall River

If I could I would buy a ticket for all of the above, but obviously that isn't happening. I will have to pick two, maybe three shows. Right now I'm thinking of Daniel Lanois & Tortoise, Henry Rollins, and Son Volt. If I'm lucky I may be able to sneak in one more show if it falls on a weekend. I'd love to see BTS and Paul Weller again, both put on fantastic shows the last time they played in Boston.

Listening to: Peter Case- Flying Saucer Blues

Excellent touring sched, indeed. I'd probably follow your three picks, too. Though Alejandro would be great. So would BTS. Oh, the choices!

My buddy hypes The Bad Plus, but I have never heard them myself. Jazz I believe??

Satisfied: The Bad Plus are an acoustic jazz-rock trio, in the vein of Medeski, Martin, and Wood. The have been known to cover the Pixies and Black Sabbath from time to time. Check 'em out if your into that kinda jazz thing.
