Saturday To-Do: Chase Pagan

9 p.m., Juanita's. $7.

Chase Pagan might be blowing up. So far this year, he's released a self-debuted EP, performed at SXSW, toured throughout the West and played a gig at Brooklyn's Union Pool, the hipster it-venue. Along the way, he's also managed to sign a record deal with Militia Group and to land on as the site's “artist of the day.” You'll excuse Pagan if he's not breaking out the champagne yet. Years back, the Wynne-native landed a deal on big-time producer Ross Robinson's Geffen imprint, recorded an album and did an advance tour behind it. But when Geffen didn't go for the album, Pagan found himself label-less with an album destined never to see the light of day. Now, seemingly on firmer footing, Pagan stops at Juanita's while as part of his tour in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. With a soaring vocal range that often stays in the high-register, the singer/songwriter has drawn comparisons to Jeff Buckley, Thom Yorke and Freddie Mercury (Pagan's cover of Queen's “Play the Game” a few years back was pitch perfect). A self-described mix of “soul, indie and pop,” Pagan's music often sounds vaudevillian, with great brushes of theatricality countered with more stripped-down, piano-driven melodies. The home team will be out in full. Look Mexico, At Our Finest and Cory Lamb support.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
