Brett Dennen at Jefferson Theater

Brett Dennen

Californian folk sophomore Brett Dennen is back on the road! A self-taught singer and musician from an early age, Dennen's creative upbringing at home allowed him to compose his own music during his teens, and then to inspire others at summer camp. His 2004 self-titled debut album was well-received when a burned copy found its way to Apple executive Denzyl Feigelson, leading to a record contract with Dualtone Records.

The Mountain Goats at Jefferson Theater

The Mountain Goats

Despite his pluralized moniker, John Darnielle remains the sole driving force of Californian indie pop-rock outfit The Mountain Goats. With an ever-evolving roster of live and recording musicians surrounding him, Darnielle revels in his goth-tinged melancholy, fusing a winning combination of wry insight and black humor in his lyrics (which earned him the accolade of 'America's best non-hip-hop artist' by the New Yorker) with lingering melodic hooks and satisfying songcraft. This year, Darnielle brings his spell-binding songwriting to venues across America once more.
