Carbon Leaf, Mel Washington

When: Fri., Nov. 22, 9 p.m. 2013

If you want to feel the danger written into rock 'n' roll or the real-life anguish and anxiety ingrained in some of the world's best folk music, pay no mind to the Celtic-American folk-rock of Carbon Leaf. When the band emerged a decade ago, they seemed ready to electrify trans-Atlantic interpretations of Irish tunes. But they've become listless and droll with old age, playing their songs as though scared that, without the net of a large label these days, they'll ward off any incoming fans with excitement. —Grayson Haver Currin

Price: $15-18
