Jay Farrar & Anders Parker at the Columbus Theatre
Earning acclaim in the mid '00s with the raucous Americana of "Tell It to the Dust," this singer-songwriter has remained a cult figure while other bearded singer-songwriters rose to fame recently. Blessed with a rustic, reedy voice, his latest releases - the laptop-assisted double-album "Skyscraper Crow" and the all-instrumental "Cross Latitudes" - show an artist unbowed, and one well worth seeking out. Doors open at 7 p.m., show begins at 8 p.m.
