Brendan Benson w/Young Hines & The Howling Brothers 

When: Sat., April 28, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $15
Now that he’s been here several years, Brendan Benson’s acting the part of the good citizen and all-around nice guy by investing in his community. To begin with, he’s producing albums on local artists he digs — Young Hines and The Howling Brothers, among them — at local analog spot Welcome to 1979, and releasing those albums on his brand new indie label Readymade. And when it comes to his own music, he’s gotten Nashvillians like co-writing duet partner Ashley Monroe (a well-kept secret no more, thanks to Pistol Annies) and drummer Brad Pemberton in on the act. But most importantly, Benson’s doing local audiences a service by really playing to his strengths. See for yourself at the Cannery tonight. His latest, What Kind of World, is a fine piece of emotionally vulnerable power-pop, direct everywhere it ought to be, hooky throughout and executed with warmth as opposed to calculation.
