Eight Gigs: Chris Isaak
Fri., Sept. 9, 8 p.m., Red Lion Woodlake Hotel, $35-$89
Will there ever be another song that’s a better fit for staring mournfully out the window, pretending to be the star of a music video, than “Wicked Games”? I have my doubts. Fans whose knowledge spans beyond that oft-covered track and “Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing” may already know that this concert is a momentous one, but for the rest of you out there: Isaak is on tour in support of his first album in six years, First Comes the Night. An expansive record that came from time spent in Nashville, fans new and old will find much to enjoy with the charismatic singer songwriter’s latest effort. 500 Leisure Lane, www.chrisisaak.com.
