On paper, a Bobby Bare Jr. and Eef Barzelay tour pairing leaves one scratching his head. Bare Jr., a wandering minstrel from Tennessee who comes from historic honky-tonk lineage, is known for his songs of debauchery and self-destruction. Barzelay, meanwhile, is an Israeli-born and self-proclaimed "nice Jewish boy from New Jersey," and he cut his teeth fronting the buttoned-up, twang-tinged indie band Clem Snide. The pairing seems unlikely, but when you dig deeper, it makes sense. Both offer thoughtful folk lullabies sung through fragile voices and an even moreso delicate essence.

Victory Lap: Bare Jr. and Barzelay just brought this same bill to Off Broadway back in August. If you missed them the first go-around, here's another chance to witness the duo's undeniable onstage chemistry.
