Shelley Short & the Sure Shots, Adam Selzer and Michael Hurley


Alberta Rose Theatre (map) Northeast
Fri., Nov. 1, 8 p.m. 2013 21+


During the doldrums of March, Shelley Short gathered some errant Hawthorne buskers—I mean, members of the Decemberists, Black Prairie, and more—and quarantined them at Type Foundry to record a fantastic covers album in a mere day and a half. Wake the Dreamers is a cozy assemblage of fully formed (and fully live) renditions of songs by Tom Waits, Billie Holiday, the Kinks, and more. The release show will feature nearly all of the Sure Shots, as well as a reading by producer Adam Selzer from his forthcoming graphic novel, Ami Go Home, about his experience opening shows for a German Christian rock band. This is likely to be the only time the Sure Shots will back Short in performing these glorious covers, so don't you miss it. RAQUEL NASSER
