Eight Gigs: Colvin & Earle
Tue., Sep. 13, 7:30 p.m., Crest Theatre, $35-$65
Colvin & Earle released their self-titled debut earlier this year and are finally touring in support of its initial June release. Conceived by singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin after a successful pairing with Mary Chapin Carpenter across the states, it didn’t take long for her Steve Earle project to take shape. The album features songs by the duo and, as expected, some covers by influential artists like the Rolling Stones and Emmylou Harris. With an equally impressive catalog under each of their collective belts, expect lots of surprises and even some songs that may not turn up at other tour stops. 1013 K Street, www.steveearle.com.
