Nick Lowe's last release was a surprisingly great Christmas album, an odd choice for the sharp-witted Brit who once dubbed himself "the Jesus of Cool" and whose songbook has little room for sanctimony. From his pub-rock beginnings through his adept adoption of bespoke country and Americana, Lowe's recent tours have simply been a low-stakes celebration of his lyrical gifts and avuncular demeanor. If his show in the fall of 2012 at the Sheldon is any indicator, this week's performance will be solo, acoustic and warmly engrossing.

A-Rouse'd: Josh Rouse will open the show with songs that pull from 2015's fine Embers of Time LP.
