Billy Bragg, Kim Churchill

ROBERT HAM
8 pm., Tuesday April 02 | $25 advance, $28 day of show.
Aladdin Theater
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
 
[BLOKE FOLK] Billy Bragg might be pushing 60, but his autumn years find the singer-songwriter as fiery and fired-up as possible. Lyrically, at least. The tone of his 13th album, Tooth & Nail, is decidedly lived in, the blurry blasts of electric guitar that marked his earliest work giving way to languidly strummed acoustic with a drowsy country band backing him every step of the way. The LP has plenty of bite to it still, as Bragg takes on the plight of migrant workers, the military industrial complex and our current financial uncertainties with a welcome directness and melancholy.
