"Losering: The Songs of Ryan Adams"

When: Thu., May 9, 8 p.m. 2013

Late last year, longtime News & Observer pop critic David Menconi issued Losering, an occasionally intriguing portrayal of Ryan Adams' time spent as Raleigh's prodigal son and leading the alt-country atlas, Whiskeytown. But the book stumbled when it tried to trace Adams' journey out of Whiskeytown and into the realm of troubled singer-songwriter. That's due, in part, to Adams' voluminous songbook, which must weigh a metric ton by now. "Losering: The Songs of Ryan Adams" should wade through those annals more successfully: More than two-dozen songwriters, musicians and area bands share a set of Adams covers. Members of young acts such as I Was Totally Destroying It and Old Quarter pair with story-to-tell veterans such as Chip Robinson for a night that should couple reverence for the songs with a few jokes at their writer's expenses. —Grayson Currin
