Old 97's, Rhett Miller (solo acoustic set), The Os

When: Fri., Jan. 27, 8:45 p.m. 2012

The underground has boasted many would-be Westerbergs, yet Rhett Miller manages not only to capture the swaggering, drunken, ne'er-do-well spirit and jaded romanticism, he's also turned it into a career. Meanwhile, his band has fomented a blend of power pop and country rock that draws upon the Replacements' own touchstone Big Star, only with greater panache and musicianship. A three-album major label deal failed to cross over, although success felt imminent; Miller's post-millennial solo career seemed to strain the band. But 2010's twin The Grand Theatre albums showcase them back at the height of their powers. With The O's, plus a solo acoustic set by Miller. —Chris Parker
