Jason Isbell

Price: $20 - $33

When: Ended 10/25/13

Where: Varsity Theater

After a downward spiral that Twin Cities fans saw firsthand at a slurred Turf Club gig, Jason Isbell sobered up last year, got remarried and made the best album of his career — and one of the best of 2013, period. “Southeastern” finds the former Drive-by Trucker chronicling some of his bleariest nights with open eyes, from the graceful folk gem “Traveling Alone” to the literally deadly throwdown “Super 8,” but the redemption he finds is also crystal clear in other heart-tugging would-be classics. After a “Wits” appearance and solo gig earlier this year, the Alabama country rocker is finally coming around with his sturdy 400 Unit, including his new wife, fiddler/singer Amanda Shires.
