Riding the deserved acclaim of his 2013 album “Southeastern” — chronicling the songwriterly topics of addiction, death and divorce with unusual candor and grace — Jason Isbell and his searing band the 400 Unit played to a packed and ecstatic Varsity Theater crowd in October. Thus, they’re moving up to First Avenue, a room Isbell knows well from his days with the Drive-by Truckers. The Alabama twang-rocker and his wife/bandmate Amanda Shires will also be back in town next week for a Valentine’s Day taping of “Wits” at the Fitzgerald Theater. Texas country troubadour Robert Ellis opens ahead of next week’s release of his strong third album, “The Lights From the Chemical Plant.” Chris Riemenschneider
