Here in Nashville, we see quite a bit of the polemical songwriter David Bazan, considering that he hails all the way from Seattle. Epitomizing our idea of the blue-collar musician-hero, he’s almost perpetually on tour despite likely having long ago moved past the thrill of life on the road. But, for a songwriter whose somewhat iconic career and passionate following have done seemingly little to improve his economic lot, the road is what puts food in the mouths of his wife and two young children. Fortunately, Bazan cultivates a fresh live experience for each tour, so the frequency of his visits shouldn’t dissuade you from attending — the hushed, intimate solo appearances of last summer were quite different from the raucous, full-band presentation we’ll see this week. Moreover, the man maintains a catalog deep enough that his sets change considerably with each jaunt. To that end, a cursory glance at Twitter reveals that Bazan’s playing Control-era standout “Second Best” on this tour, which, as any seasoned fan would tell you, is reason enough to stay out late on a school night. Local Tyler James opens.
