To call Christian Lee Hutson an old soul would be to deny the vibrancy of his sound. Hutson’s songs have been championed by LA Record as “sparse and graceful” and by Folkadelphia as “(Having) the feel of having been scrawled on whiskey-stained napkins while the house country band plays us into the lonesome night. A mass for the brokenhearted.” Hutson’s work – while rooted in country tradition – vibrates with a youthful energy, as if a drunk and sedentary George Jones was being channeled through a drunk and animated Conor Oberst.

8pm show, $20 adv, $22 dos, Buy Tickets

The Wood Brothers are back on the road this September and October. The three week run will focus heavily on shows in the Southeast and Midwest in a number of cities yet to be visited since the release of their critically acclaimed, Buddy Miller-produced album, The Muse. On Monday, September 29, they’ll stop in Cincinnati, OH to play The 20th Century Theater.

A three-piece unit comprised of brothers Oliver and Chris Wood along with multi-instrumentalist Jano Rix, The Wood Brothers sound is an amalgam of vintage roots music, drawing equal inspiration from blues, folk, gospel and jazz. Their earthy Americana-based sound is adorned by the brothers’ high and lonesome harmonies, stinging slide guitar lines and floor-stomping rhythms, but at the foundation is exquisite songwriting.
