TVD Recommends:
Cory Branan at the BEATnik, 9/11

The club formerly known as the Big Top (on Clio, just off of St. Charles) will host the alternative country troubadour. Doors open at 8 PM.

Throughout his fifteen-year career Cory has remained an artist who defies any attempt to pigeonhole and neatly categorize.

Often his songs sound like they just might be at home on a pop country radio station if they weren’t so good. But upon closer listening, his lyrics evoke the painfully poetic Conor Oberst more than Kenny Chesney. (We listened to his most recent album and there was no mention of tractors, sexy or otherwise.)

But not every cut off Cory’s latest album has a Nashville-ready sound. Slower, introspective tracks such as the “The Meantime Blues” are reminiscent of John Prine. To further confound those trying to describe his sound, Branan definitely has a bit of a punk flair.

In fact, that’s why Branan called his 2012 release Mutt. He thought it was a good description of the type of music he played. His new album, No-Hit Wonder is currently available for download on iTunes and at amazon.com.

Whether you enjoy a singer-songwriter with a story to tell, you like to two-step, you just want to rock out, or all three, Cory will surely put on a satisfying show Thursday night.

Tickets are available here  for $8.
