Willie Nile bridges the chasm that lies between Bob Dylan and The Clash. He ties intelligent, literate lyrics to frenetic melodies and crashing rhythms. Talk to Willie, and the F-bomb may pop out of his craggy face. Willie turns 71 in June, and he’s still active and creative — maybe more than ever. His creativity was on display at The Hamilton Live recently.

The timing of the Sisters of Strawberry Moon Tour seems a little odd. The supergroup’s album, Solstice, doesn’t come out until two days after they finished their tour recently at City Winery DC. But supergroups have fickle natures.
