Steve Forbert, Jon Shain

When: Fri., Oct. 26, 8 p.m. 2012

As a young folk rocker in the'70s, Steve Forbert was one of many singer-songwriters unfairly saddled with the expectation of becoming the new Dylan. Though the strength of his writing rarely enters Dylan's elite stratosphere, Forbert's clever songs are much more accessible due to his considerable pop smarts—take his biggest hit, "Romeo's Tune," as evidence. More than three decades later, Forbert has since grown into a mature songsmith who pairs his rasp well with rich, nuanced arrangements on moody, direct tunes. Local folkie Jon Shain is a fitting opener. —Spencer Griffith
