Pin It

AMERICANA | Justin Townes Earle 

Justin Townes Earle has one of those timeless voices. It's a deep, swaying country drag — with just a bit of pining — that could fit in just as well with the Americana titans of the 50's, 60's, and 70's as with modern indie folk. A gifted lyricist — a gene passed down from his father, Steve Earle — Justin Townes Earle's words carry their sobering weight over classic tenets: a whole lot of ole-fashioned country, a little bit of rockabilly, a splash of rural soul. Earle isn't a guy necessarily reinventing the wheel, but he pays homage to the past and brings it into the present.

Justin Townes Earle performs with American Aquarium on Friday, September 19, at Water Street Music Hall, 204 North Water Street. 8 p.m. $20-$25. Waterstreetmusic.com; justintownesearle.com.

    Summer starts June 21, so with beautiful weather inevitable during the next few months, there's no reason to stay home. We say it every year, but it's always true: Western New York comes alive during the summer months.
