Ben Kweller

When: Fri., Aug. 8, 9 p.m. 2014

On his Facebook page, Austin, Texas-based musician Ben Kweller lists the many terms that can apply to him: "indie-popster, power-popist, balladeer, anti-folkie, acoustic-punk-rocker." They all describe different facets of the 34-year-old's versatile musical ability, as he can belt out a catchy pop melody over electric guitar as well as croon with genuine emotion over piano. Kweller has been in the music game a long time considering his relatively young age, as he started playing music at age 9. He discovered his highly personal, revealing writing style after he moved to New York City at age 18 in his post-Radish days, and it's since been the glowing heart of several albums, including 2012's Go Fly a Kite. Will Sartain is also on the bill. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
