Ben Kweller should be a familiar name to anyone who likes other moppy-haired Bens such as Ben Folds and Ben Lee. Equally comfortable behind a piano as a guitar, Kweller is a smart lyricist and an attentive craftsman of melody. The 26-year-old's retrotastic pop veered toward light-rock territory on his recent self-titled release, but his larger catalog is informed by bright power pop tunes regarding love, youth and spaghetti. Folk-pop scribe Willy Mason (Astralwerks Records) sets the stage along with Lawrence's Old Canes. Doors at 6:00pm, Show at 7:30pm.
