Smart bets: Chuck Brodsky

Shortly after casting an envious gaze on two guitar players during college orientation, Americana singer-songwriter Chuck Brodsky swapped formal education for a musical pursuit all his own. Now, 11 albums later, the pianist-turned-guitarist has mastered the art of adorning his lyrical tales with eccentricity and wit. His song “2,000 Friends,” for instance, pokes fun at Facebook’s uncanny ability to convey both extremely pertinent information (i.e. his ex’s children having no resemblance to himself) as well as factoids of relatively less import (i.e. the duration of rainstorms in Sarasota, Fla.). The humor-driven Ashevillean, along with support from local multi-instrumentalist Chris Rosser, presents his latest album, Tale Tell Heart, during a seated set at The Grey Eagle. Saturday, March 7, at 8 p.m. $12/$15. Photo by David Simchock
