Brendan Benson, Posies, Aqueduct

When: Thu., Nov. 18, 8 p.m. 2010

Playing with Jack White afforded Brendan Benson an opportunity any competitor would envy. It helped propel last year's My Old, Familiar Friends to No. 110 on the Billboard charts after a career of relative obscurity. It's welcome because Benson's a top-shelf pop craftsman of the type one rarely encounters (and the radio, sadly, no longer embraces). He displays exemplary command of the hook-laden rock and baroque pop pioneered by The Beatles, Zombies and Big Star. He's got a fine voice, a gift for keen couplets and an instinct for the subtle musical touches that distinguish pretty from simple earworm status. —Chris Parker

Price: $18-20
