Crazy how time passes. Not a new thought, but one that still beguiles. On Wednesday, the Pageant hosted Say Anything, Saves the Day and Reggie and the Full Effect for a celebration of the 10-year anniversary of Say Anything's "...Is a Real Boy."

The crowd at the Pageant seemed to ebb and flow with the music, rising and falling as if visual manifestations of alt-J's dynamic sound.

I needed some of what singer-songwriter John Moreland would refer to as "God's Medicine" -- a night of literate, acoustic music, people and spectacle.

The Mastersons 6/5/14

Streaming Audio

The countrified, poppy aesthetic of the Mastersons, a Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter duo, was forged at a festival in Colorado where the pair first met by chance.

I slipped into the Gramophone shortly after opener Leif Vollebekk, an acoustic troubadour from Montreal, took to the stage. As the crowd chattered and clinked their glasses, Vollebekk stood alone with a grateful grin on his face, projecting silken, Dylan-esque fingerpicking and vocals toward the Gramophone's bar wall.

The Spring Standards 3/24/14

Streaming Audio

Expanding upon sounds first captured in their childhood, the Spring Standards offer listeners a dulcet escape into a vivid world of folk, story-telling and hushed instrumentation.

"You should have seen that girl go shaky at the knees," sang Blitzen Trapper's Eric Earley halfway through the Portland, Ore. band's set. His words proved applicable to more than doting young girls; they illuminated the reactions of every Blitzen Trapper and Drive-By Truckers fan at the Pageant on Saturday night.

I arrived late to Off Broadway, because I locked myself out of my car after work and missed the entirety of Bald Eagle Mountain's set and most of Search Parties'.

I double-parked a red Jetta toward the back of Off Broadway's parking lot as I tossed the butt of my smoke through the cracked window. Hold Steady fans of various ages milled through the parking lot and headed on across Lemp Ave. with a hungry gate that could only be satiated by bar rock. I crunched across the gravel of Off Broadway's entrance/porch and found myself amidst other like-minded music fans, basking in the warmth of Tim Barry's acoustic folk.
