Tonight @ The Riverside Theater, 8 p.m.

The title of Lyle Lovett’s 2007 album, It’s Not Big It’s Large, once again makes the case that Lovett has argued repeatedly since the late-’80s: His orchestral Large Band may be big in that it has many members, but it is not a big band in the sense that it does not play big-band jazz.

Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt enlighten through songwriting

Lyle Lovett knows that great songwriting can be a means to an end, one that reaches out and touches audiences.

Based on his own musical experiences, the Houston-based singer/songwriter appreciates the art of songwriting more than most of us. "A great song is a rare thing," Lovett says. "Great songs never seem contrived; they just seem true." Lovett will explore many of his own songs during an all-acoustic evening Feb. 17 at the Pabst Theater, when he shares the stage...

This Week in Milwaukee

Blackberry Smoke @ Shank Hall, 8 p.m. While diverse stylistic range is often the hallmark of profound musical study, sometimes there’s something equally admirable about cornering and perfecting a specific niche. That’s the path taken by Atlanta’s Blackberry Smoke, who’ve wholeheartedly devoted themselves to the cause...
