Tonight in live music; Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires and Richard Thompson at Ruth Eckerd, more

Glen Phillips returns to Hideaway Cafe, too.


✔️ = Critic's Pick

✔️ Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit w/Amanda Shires/Richard Thompson It’s been just three months since Amanda Shires was on the Ruth Eckerd stage opening for John Prine and telling stories about her hubby Jason Isbell (“Vampires” are real y’all). Shires will be a welcome sight on Tuesday when she opens for (and then joins) Isbell and the 400 Unit onstage in support of his masterful, Grammy-winning 2017 album The Nashville Sound. Isbell sold out the very same room in 2016, and the addition of English guitar god Richard Thompson means this show’ll probably sell out, too. (Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater) INFO
