Iron & Wine, Laura Mvula 

When: Sat., Nov. 2, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $30-35
Before Bon Iver enamored audiences with sad-bastard beardo folk, there was Iron and Wine. Main Wino Sam Beam helped introduce the era of indie-folk in the early 2000s, but even as artists like the Lumineers and Mumford and Sons have widened Americana's appeal, Beam has pushed his outlet further from the rustic home-recorded twang of his early recordings. New album Ghost on Ghost sports a more relaxed, AM radio-flavored brand of pop and soul. The sound is still vintage, but there's an effortless, lived-in groove that runs through the entire record—and it's nothing you would have anticipated when you first heard 2002's The Creek Drank the Cradle.
