Joe Pug, Horse Feathers

When: Fri., Jan. 22, 8:30 p.m. 2016

Dropping out of college is an unlikely watershed moment, but for singer-songwriter Joe Pug (né Pugliese), ditching his playwriting studies at UNC and making a drive to Chicago was the spark for a career that’s entering Act 2. He started writing songs that relied on just his voice, guitar and occasional harmonica, sounding something like the raw narratives of Springsteen’s Nebraska. Pug grew his reputation, initially, by giving his music away—postage included. After touring with Steve Earle in 2009, Pug stayed on the road for a few years until a hiatus beckoned. His 2015 LP, Windfall, is polished Americana, permeated by a sense of acceptance. —David Klein
