Read to the end for a ticket giveaway.
More than 25 years after breaking through to critical and commercial acclaim with his 1982 self-titled debut and its era-defining pop hit “Someday, Someway,” Marshall Crenshaw created a new chapter in his career last year with the release of his 429 Records debut Jaggedland. The title is a term that Crenshaw says best describes the current state of his brain and consciousness. His newest songs are musical observations about the human experience, mortality, the state of the world and of course, love as viewed through the inimitable Crenshaw perspective. Crenshaw will be performing at Outpost in the Burbs, along with Willie Nile, this Friday, January 7, 8 p.m.
Nile — an Outpost favorite — has recently played with Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, Tori Amos, Elvis Costello, Lucinda Williams, Ian Hunter, and Barenaked Ladies. He told Outpost staff, during an exchange of e-mails regarding Friday’s show, that he expects the concert to “kill, musically and artistically.”
