Tim Barry

8:30 p.m. Sunday, March 28. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

The punker-gone-solo route is a familiar path for many frontmen. In the past few years alone, the singers of Thrice, Hot Water Music, Lucero and dozens more have explored their folksier, quieter side — with mixed results. Avail leader Tim Barry predates the trend, with his first solo release coming in 2005. Since then, he's won over a legion of followers with his deceptively simple songs and detailed storytelling. But just because Barry's without a backing band, don't think he's any less punk: He recently broke his hand onstage during one of his shows in a fight with an unruly audience member. It might not be Black Flag musically, but it sure is in spirit.
