8pm. Greg Brown's songwriting has been lauded by many, and his songs have been performed by Willie Nelson, Carlos Santana, Michael Johnson, Shawn Colvin, and Mary Chapin Carpenter. He has also recorded more than a dozen albums, including his 1986 release, Songs of Innocence and of Experience, when he put aside his own songwriting to set poems of William Blake to music. One Big Town, recorded in 1989, earned Brown three and a half stars in Rolling Stone, chart-topping status in AAA and The Gavin Report's Americana rankings and Brown's first Indie Award from NAIRD National Association of Independent Record Distributors. The Poet Game, his 1994 CD, received another Indie award from NAIRD. His critically acclaimed 1996 release, Further In, was a finalist for the same award. Rolling Stone's four-star review of Further In called Brown a wickedly sharp observer of the human condition. 1997's Slant 6 Mind Red House Records earned Brown his second Grammy nomination. His latest CD, One Night Red House, is a re-release of a 1983 live performance originally on Minneapolis' Coffeehouse Extempor Records. Reserved Seats $25 adv $30 door Box Seats $30 adv $35 door.
