Robbie Fulks, Brian McGee

When: Thu., June 16, 8 p.m. 2016

Even when he was turning out gut-busting satirical lyrics atop Bakersfield-indebted riffs, Chicagoan Robbie Fulks seemed like the thinking person’s alt-country singer-songwriter. During the last several years, the lanky troubadour has elected to strike at funny bones less and less, aiming instead for the heart and the head. That’s certainly true of his latest outing, Upland Stories, which frames songs inspired by writers like James Dickey in acoustic arrangements. Bernie missed a good bet by not adopting “America Is a Hard Religion” as his campaign song. —Jim Allen

Price: $14-$16
