It’s been almost five years since we’ve seen Brendan Benson come through town, but the Detroit-bred singer/songwriter is making his return to the Valley with a Feb. 22 show at the Rhythm Room. It’s a 21-and-over show and tickets ($13 advance / $15 day of) are available here. Frank Fairfield, profiled last summer by Weiss, is the opener.
Benson is touring in support of his 2009 release My Old, Familiar Friend after spending time touring and releasing two albums with Jack White and the Raconteurs. I’m excited to see him in solo form with a touring band that includes Brad Pemberton on drums (Ryan Adams), Jared Reynolds on bass (Ben Folds) and Mark Watrous on guitar and keys (the Raconteurs).
