Silver Jews / Jennifer O'Connor 

9 p.m. Friday, July 28. Blueberry Hill's Duck Room (6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City).

David Berman of the Silver Jews is the best lyricist working in rock music today. Over the course of seventeen years and five albums, Berman's brilliant words have earned him a small but devoted following (owing in large part, at least at first, to the presence of Pavement's Stephen Malkmus, a longtime collaborator). The Jews' most recent album, Tanglewood Numbers, seamlessly moves between country and rock, though the description hardly captures the glory of Berman's vision. "Like a brown bird nesting in a Texaco sign, I got a point of view," he sings on "I'm Getting Back Into Getting Back Into You," and one just wants to climb on up there with him. Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Jennifer O'Connor opens.
