When: Sat., Oct. 13, 9:30 p.m. 2012

If there's a common thread from Adelyn Rose to Humble Tripe, it's subtlety. Given the brittle elements of Rose's folk-leaning style, including woodwinds and wispy distortion, one might be tempted to term her songs twee. But the Wisconsin singer is indebted to a more traditional lineage of songwriting, leaning on the simple tunes and striking images of her forebears. Humble Tripe anchors its multifaceted folk with understated melody. Banjo prickles give way to graceful bongo taps and droning violin, never overpowering the softly piercing voice of singer Shawn Luby. Clinton Johnson, the solo guise of Schooner frontman Reid Johnson, opens. —Jordan Lawrence
