Smart Bets: Yusif

Singer-songwriter Yusif writes pop-rockers about love and loss, but also about war (more specifically, anti-war). Because Yusif, who was born in Seattle, also grew up in Kuwait and was living in that politically-charged locale during the Gulf War. Back in the U.S., Yusif synthesized American rock music (especially Seattle grunge) into his style. His just-released self-titled album deals with the musician's multicultural background, his struggled with Kuwaiti ideals and his feelings of being an outsider in two countries. Yusif's tour beings him to Good Stuff in Marshall on Tuesday, Nov. 6. 7 p.m.
