with Jon Snodgrass, Northcote, Jayke Orvis | 7 p.m. Sunday, 12 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $12-$14 | 18 and up
After emerging as the stunning dark horse in the legendary 2008 class of Chuck Ragan’s Revival Tour, this Indiana-raised singer-songwriter has risen in the Americana underground to work and perform with almost every legit folk-punk star out there. In addition to regular tours through Orlando, this pure-voiced country crooner was practically local several years ago, hanging and playing around the area with fantastic frequency. After that sweet saturation, however, he’s been completely AWOL here. Now he’s on standard-bearing alt-country label New West Records – where he released last year’s full-band album, Stay Reckless – and he’s returning to town a made man for a long-awaited performance. Like the best traveling joint-force showcases in this genre, à la the Revival Tour, this show will involve lots of cross-collaboration between the featured artists, including Drag the River’s Jon Snodgrass, .357 String Band’s Jayke Orvis and Canada’s Northcote. Newcomers, come bask in the radiance of Lucas’ gorgeously authentic voice. Insiders, come give the guy a warm home-away-from-homecoming. – Bao Le-Huu
