JOSH RITTER
9 p.m., Revolution, $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Josh Ritter makes his Revolution debut with an all-ages show on his “Small Town USA” tour, following the release of his latest record, “The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter.” The album has received widespread critical acclaim and Ritter also has been named by Entertainment Weekly among its Top 10 artists to watch. Songs such as “The Dogs of Whoever,” pay true, yet subtle, homage to Bob Dylan, with musically reserved verses followed by a 3-2-1 blastoff breaking wide open into a heavier chorus, supported by a rock-bottom rhythm section, piano included, and strong backing vocal accompaniment. Expect electric and acoustic pianos, organs, guitars, vibraphone and percussion galore, along with acoustic, electric and double bass, and, of course, drums. Baton Rouge natives the Benjy Davis Project open.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
