Mark Kozelek 

When: Mon., Sept. 24, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $22.50-$25
Were “dudes who love Neil Young” an actual genre, consider Mark Kozelek a legend in his field. (See also: Jason Molina, Will Oldham). From Red House Painters’ lovesick slowcore to Sun Kil Moon’s shimmering, verbose guitar-rock, the San Francisco singer-songwriter has built a distinguished catalog of emotionally resonant confessionals, with an offbeat flair evidenced by entire albums of AC/DC and Modest Mouse covers. Among the Leaves, Kozelek’s latest set of originals, is a sonically sparse affair not unlike 2010’s Admiral Fell Promises (or Young’s Harvest Moon), but it ups the usual amusingly self-deprecating lyrical ante with harsh midlife-crisis sentiments — “In the ’90s … we had lots of female fans, and fuck, they were all cute / Now I sign posters for guys in tennis shoes” (from “Chicago in Winter”) — and titles like “The Moderately Talented Yet Attractive Young Woman vs. The Exceptionally Talented Yet Not So Attractive Middle-Aged Man.”
— CHARLIE ZAILLIAN
