Jewel, JD & The Straight Shot

When: Sat., March 19, 8 p.m. 2016

The way Jewel’s paper-light songs ruled radio in the mid-nineties, you’d think the whole country was going to start decamping to coffeehouses en masse for new music. After that near-miss (R.I.P., Hear Music), Jewel became a shape-shifter—poet, children’s-music crafter, WWE Raw guest host—and arrived back at the beginning in 2015, with an album saluting her debut, Pieces of You. Picking Up the Pieces thankfully finds itself in slightly weirder territory than its two-decade-old antecedent. “Love Used to Be,” for instance, veers into poetry-slam mode over gently militaristic drums. JD & the Straight Shot, the blues vanity project of cable mogul and sports owner James Dolan, opens. Whatever you do, don’t heckle him about the Knicks’ season score. —Maura Johnston
