Beaver Nelson

8 p.m. Monday, August 13. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

Beaver Nelson
Beaver Nelson is touring in support of his new album and coinciding film.

What keeps Beaver Nelson going? The teen prodigy has been pouring out unguarded, witty persuasions since the early '90s, and doing so in the most competitive environment imaginable: Austin, Texas. But Nelson has always leaned more toward the bent tunefulness of David Lowery or Elvis Costello than his Texas brethren. This year's sprawling Macro/Micro splices together strange instrumental interludes with pungent power-pop anthems and brainy homages to the subconscious, which always does the dirty work for a sneaky songwriter like Nelson. He's prolific, charming and stubbornly faithful to his rock and folk muses.

On the Big Screen: Nelson recently worked with filmmaker Stephen Henderson on an album-length video project, and you'll get to see the final cut projected behind the singer at Off Broadway.
