John Prine and Margo Price
Fri. Feb. 2 | Following his appearance at Live from Here at the Saenger Theatre, John Prine (pictured) sticks around New Orleans for a solo performance, joined by country singer-songwriter Margo Price, whose acclaimed 2017 album All American Made cuts deep into the shortcomings of the American dream. At 8 p.m. at the Orpheum Theater.

Neighbor Lady with Futurebirds
Fri. Feb. 2 | Athens, Georgia's Neighbor Lady seems poised to make noise. The two tracks issued ahead of May debut Maybe Later (Friendship Fever), "Consider Me Mean" (a billowing 2016 ballad) and "Fine" (the recently leaked saloon-storming single), cast singer Emily Braden as a country-rock force of nature. Futurebirds (pictured) headlines at 10 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.

Richard Thompson
Sat. Feb. 3 | From Fairport Convention to I Want to See the Bright Lights Tonight to the myriad folk- and nuanced guitar-focused albums he's released over five decades, Richard Thompson mines his catalog as a three-piece ensemble in an intimate tour. Andrew Duhon opens at 8 p.m. at The Parish at House of Blues.

John Maus
Mon. Feb. 5 | Screen Memories (Ribbon), the first new album in six years by synth storm-chaser (and Ariel Pink evil twin) John Maus, was recorded on homemade keyboards and swings between dreamy AM pop collages, guilty-pleasure Knight Rider drag races and post-punk techno-paranoia. LUKDLX opens at 9 p.m. at One Eyed Jacks.
