Preview: Ben Kweller at The Basement
His wunderkind days are behind him, but even if Ben Kweller is playing smaller rooms than he used to, his future as a fiercely supported cult favorite seems assured. Kweller is keeping up his end of the bargain; his albums aren't flashy, but they show a mastery of pop craftsmanship that must be the envy of every aspiring alt bro with a guitar and a haircut. His new "Go Fly a Kite" shows no signs of degradation - seriously, those George Harrison guitar flourishes on "Out the Door" are out of this world!
Sleeper Agent and The Dig will also appear Monday at The Basement.
8 p.m. Monday, March 26
391 Neil Ave., Arena District
