Concert preview: The Lone Bellow explores heavier themes on musically uplifting Then Came the Morning

Andy Downing, Columbus Alive

Then Came the Morning, the sophomore effort from the Brooklyn-based roots-rock trio, could've alternately been titled Then Came the Mourning. Throughout, frontman Zach Williams, whose big voice skims waterbug-like over the meticulously composed surface (it's little surprise to learn the National's Aaron Dessner served as producer here), sings of broken hearts and southern winds putting him "six feet down" even as the music arches further skyward.

Hugh Masterson and Anderson East open the show.
