Bobby Bare’s Young Criminals’ Starvation League, Carter King and Thomas Johnson

He’s the son of legendary country figure Bobby Bare, but don’t let his pedigree fool you: With his group Young Criminals’ Starvation League, Nashville-based singer-songwriter Bobby Bare Jr. offers up a skewed take on the rootsy Americana his hometown is known for. Playful but powerful, Bare and his band employ sheets of psychedelic guitar and bursts of bluegrass banjo with equally convincing gusto, as evidenced by the recent Undefeated LP. Show up on time for this one, as Futurebirds’ Carter King and Thomas Johnson are back in town to perform a stripped-down duo set.
