Care for a slice of Americana à la modernism? On Wednesday, June 25, Low Spirits’ sonic special is Austinite one-man band Possessed by Paul James. In merely eight years, prime mover Konrad Wert has amassed a cult fan base in both his stomping ground, aka the Live Music Capitol of the World, and across the US. While possession is a strong word, it’s not difficult to see why Wert chose the moniker; when he belts out his lyrical poetry and wails on banjo, fiddle and guitar onstage, Wert certainly appears to be infused with the spirit of unbridled self-expression and exploration. Catch Possessed by Paul James at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW). This 21-plus concert starts at 9pm, and tickets are $7.
