EVENT DETAILS

Iron & Wine with Widowspeak - SOLD OUT

Price: $30

When: Ended 09/18/13

Where: First Avenue Mainroom

If you expect next week’s Iron & Wine concert to be an intimate, soft, solitary-folkie sort of affair like it was with early albums, then you clearly haven’t been keeping up. Austin, Texas-based song man Sam Beam is now touring with a 12-member ensemble in keeping with the lushly orchestrated and sometimes surprisingly funky sound of his recent albums for Nonesuch. His latest one, “Ghost on Ghost,” echoes Van Morrison’s most ambitious stuff and even has a Christopher Cross-like soft-rock sheen to it. Beam might be losing some of his hipness factor, but he’s really finding a groove. Brooklyn boy/girl duo Widowspeak opens. Chris Riemenschneider
