Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real

Sept. 25
7 p.m.
Alt-Country, Americana, Classic Rock, Country

Armed with a reedy warble uncannily like Willie’s, Lukas Nelson is on track to emulate his dad’s renown too. Lukas had a key role on the soundtrack of 2018’s A Star Is Born while his decade-old POTR band, lately Neil Young’s go-to outfit, keeps getting better. Their new Turn Off The News, Build A Garden is an eclectic, nicely crafted assortment of country-rock, R&B, pop, and Americana rockers, the latter referencing the likes of Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, the Allman,s and Young. The vibe is sunny and engaging, and if the title track is a bit naïve in destructive, demonic Trump times, its sentiments are sincere. Los Coast opens.
