Langhorne Slim, Harper Simon

When: Wed., June 9, 9 p.m. 2010

Langhorne Slim has the type of vivacity capable of energizing a room the size of the Cat's Cradle. Vigorously strummed acoustic chords fuel the untamed spirit of marathon performances by Slim and his trio of War Eagles, though the quartet's just as skilled at easing off the pedal on gentle folk pop tunes, like the soft piano and brushed snare accents that made "Worries" fitting for an insurance commercial. As Slim's matured, he's increasingly outfitted his austere lyricism with that type of polish, but don't take that as a slight—we've all seen far too many pitchers burn out early by tossing fastballs every night, anyway. With Harper Simon. —Spencer Griffith
