Porch Light Apothecary, Roger Troy Smith & Red Engine, City Below

When: Wed., July 29, 9 p.m. 2015

Even as a live record, the minimalism of Porch Light Apothecary’s new album is daring. Many of the popular songwriters that leap immediately to mind when listening—current alt-country standouts Jason Isbell and John Moreland, for instance—wrap their studio efforts with deceptively full arrangements, where pedal steel and harmony singing can cushion any lame lyrics. But on Live at Lincoln Theatre, there’s just acoustic and electric guitar and drums. Sure, there are some moments when Brent Jordan’s words could use a little more support, but more often than not, his booming baritone and sincere sentiments play well in this stark light. —Jordan Lawrence
