Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights, Ponderosa

When: Sun., Nov. 7, 8:30 p.m. 2010

Born from sessions for frontman Kalen Nash's solo pop project, Ponderosa amps up Nash's catchy songcraft with a hefty helping of raw, Southern-flavored garage rock but are still capable of toning it down for a soulful ballad or two. This versatile duality serves the songwriter well: With just a slight twang, Nash's polished, honeyed pipes take center stage on the casual, acoustic-based portion of Ponderosa's catalog, but he runs ragged like a man possessed over the quartet's boot-stomping, roadhouse-friendly repertoire. Dallas quintet Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights are similarly minded, serving up muscular Southern rock reminiscent of latter-day Black Crowes. —Spencer Griffith
