City and Colour
Mon. Jan. 18 | Canadian singer/songwriter Dallas Green is a musical nomad, traveling from post-hardcore guitar-and-vocal work with previous band Alexisonfire to acoustic ventricle-rending on his early City and Colour albums to the sultry male-Sade of his latest release, last year's If I Should Go Before You (Dine Alone). Greyhounds opens at 8 p.m. at House of Blues.
