Local acoustic guitarist M. Ward is big and famous now for a reason. His smoky voice and soothing strumming make his songs sweet and sad without being sappy. Also, never ever miss a performance by opener Calvin Johnson, eccentric leader of the K Records family, who has a penchant for telling long-winded stories about his bizarre life between sonorous songs.
