Citizen Cope, Kenny Roby

When: Mon., Nov. 5, 8 p.m. 2012

Tying easygoing coffeehouse strums—think Jack Johnson—to a hip-hop influence, veteran singer-songwriter Citizen Cope is identifiable more for the laid-back urban vibe his songs conjure rather than the few somewhat memorable tunes he's written. Employing a quasi-rap delivery on occasion, Cope pales to like-minded contemporaries such as G. Love, failing to deliver hooks or lyrical heft throughout his lightweight fare. At least he consistently sets a mellow mood that allows fans to drift through his catalog without realizing he's following a formula. The opposite of Cope in countless ways, local Kenny Roby makes an odd but alluring choice for the opening spot. —Spencer Griffith
