Tom Brosseau

Troubadour Tom Brosseau is a favorite of blueswoman Bonnie Raitt, who recently sang his praises in an interview. But the Los Angeles-via-North Dakota resident possesses all of the necessary elements for folk superstardom: a soothing voice (think Dylan without the gravel, or a less-trembling Jeff Buckley) and spartan, acoustic guitar-driven tunes that treasure simplicity and subtlety. Even this year's lushly orchestrated What I Mean to Say Is Goodbye -- harmonium, strings and Wurlitzer all arrive to add color -- feels as uncomplicated as a quiet afternoon spent sipping tea.

Show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 to $10; call 314-773-3363 for more information.
