Wreckless Eric & Amy Rigby

When: Thu., June 10, 8 p.m. 2010

Wreckless Eric Goulden's body of work, which recalls such peers as Nick Lowe, Robyn Hitchcock and the late Ian Dury, has been built across three-plus decades. But he remains best known for one of his earliest tracks, the Lowe-produced "Whole Wide World." Amy Rigby played in a New York country outfit and the Shangri-Las-redux group The Shams, but she broke out in 1996 with Diary of a Mod Housewife, a smashing work of folk-rock for reluctant grown-ups. When Goulden and Rigby, who'd recently added "Whole Wide World" to her live act, were paired for a show in Hull, England, a couple years back, it must have been love at first set, as the two married the following April. The two albums that have resulted feel created partly by seasoned pros and partly by giddy honeymooners—with touch points bouncing from Lee & Nancy and Ira & Georgia to Mickey & Sylvia and Mitch & Mickey. —Rick Cornell
