Peter Mulvey, Patrick Dyer Wolf

When: Thu., March 1, 8 p.m. 2012

A theater major at Marquette, Peter Mulvey wound up busking in the Boston subways, slowly building a regional following and local press accolades. He frequently sings with the mannered theatricality of a beatnik poet, or narrates in a radio baritone over delicately detailed fingerpicked runs stacked like a pyramid of crystal goblets. Beyond this stylistic tic, it's hard to figure why he hasn't found wider acclaim in the last two decades. His playing is astounding. He spent time in Ireland and proves as adept at a folksy reel as jammy acoustic-funk. The lyrics are heady, and mostly in a good way (as opposed to, say, a New Radicals way). Patrick Dyer Wolf opens. —Chris Parker
