Billy Bragg, Kim Churchill

When: Fri., April 19, 8 p.m. 2013

As the maker of politically charged punk-folk anthems, Billy Bragg might seem an unlikely choice for above-the-fray voice of reason. But in the wake of the recent online schadenfreude fest following the death of Margaret Thatcher, there he was, sagely counseling folks not to gloat but to organize. The former busker, who has been "mixing pop and politics" for nearly 30 years, has never forgotten the pop side of the equation. On his new record, Tooth and Nail, Bragg is as flinty and impassioned as ever. Live, Bragg proves that all it takes is a person with a guitar and a mic to command a room. He's also a master of the art of between-song patter, so plan bathroom breaks accordingly. —David Klein
