$20 – $25
Texas native and Hendrix College grad Hayes Carll is returning to the Rev Room in support of his sixth album “What It Is,” offering his significant fan base another opportunity to take in one of Americana’s most reliable songwriters and performers. Carll’s latest is a worthy addition to his impressive discography, with timeless instrumentation, trademark witticisms and a wide array of subject matter. Carll’s real draw, however, is the songwriting, with songs tackling political issues like the events in Charlottesville (“Fragile Men”) and right-wing internet trolls (“Wild Pointy Finger”), fitting comfortably beside love songs (“None’ya,” among many) and classic country bar songs (“Jesus and Elvis”).
