With summer approaching, the buzz of warm-weather bugs and sweet, strummed guitar become part of the season's soundtrack. On Monday, Robert Francis, sponsored by 94.9 The River, will bring both to Boise. OK, maybe not humming insects, but he'll probably perform his popular hit "Junebug." (Close enough?)
Francis' 2007 debut release One By One offered listeners a taste of his vocal range--he can go from ground level basstones to sky-high falsettos--and the emotional lyrical outpouring he has become known for.
What makes this show all the more interesting are Francis' special guests, singer-songwriters Jack Littman and Nikki Lang. Both are a part of a new Knitting Factory venture: High Adventure Management, an artist management arm of the Knitting Factory machine. Tickets to this show are free but are only available through 94.9 The River.
7:30 p.m., FREE from 94.9 The River. Knitting Factory, 416 S, Ninth St., bo.knittingfactory.com.
