Simon Joyner, John Davis & The Cicadas

When: Tue., May 24, 8:30 p.m. 2016

Perhaps more than any other songwriter currently operating, Nebraskan Simon Joyner conjures the dark wit of Leonard Cohen. But his evocations never stoop to mimicry. Joyner hems Cohen’s lugubrious urbanity with the forlorn twang of cultish country songwriters such as Gene Clark. In his songs, you’ll find the loneliness of the rolling plains. Plus, he was championed by the late legendary BBC disk jockey John Peel. How’s that for a ringing endorsement? —Patrick Wall

Price: $10-$12
