Sure, Chicago guitarist/vocalist Ryley Walker’s pensive, progressive folk-rock is nice, but have you read his Twitter account? Dude could ditch his acoustic guitar for the stand-up circuit and clean up with his niche, music-nerd humor and observations about the hilarious mundanities of touring. (Example: “If the Coen brothers do a freak folk movie please let me play the Northern California show promoter who is too high on peyote to pay them.”) You may get a taste of Walker’s wit at the Sunset tonight, but if not, his serpentine, pastoral compositions and sonorous vocals—somewhere between Pentangle’s Bert Jansch and first-album Tim Buckley—should be worth the price of admission, as they whisk you away to a greener, better world.
