Kenny Roby, Leadville Social Club

When: Sat., May 19 2012

KENNY ROBY The Triangle veteran is shopping around his new one, tentatively titled The Fault, and shouldn’t have trouble finding a taker even in this shitty music-seller’s market — it’s a stunner. Not so much a transformation as an impressive recalibration, Roby subdues the twang that’s trailed him around since his 6 String Drag days in the late-’90s, and cloaks his songs in judicious orchestral strings, horns, flutes and the like. But the music loses not an iota of its rough-hewn, minor-key charm — if anything, these Southern Gothic vignettes stand out even more by reaching higher. He’s playing solo this night, but you’ll hear — the man can pen a great song. (John Schacht)

Price: $8
