Langhorne Slim (playing tonight at the Fox Theatre in Boulder with Samantha Crain and Jonah Wisneski) could easily fit under the folk or alt-country label, but the Pennsylvania native is truly a gospel singer by nature. Slim's vocals nod to Dylan, too, but it is the soulful reverie in his voice, accompanied best by just a guitar and bolstered by a shy-but-commanding stage presence, that sets the singer-songwriter apart.
Playing out since 1999, Slim has released seven EPs and full-lengths, both independently and through various labels, and spent copious amounts of time on the road in support of diverse acts like Cake, Lucero and the Violent Femmes. This show is all-ages, and tickets are $12-$17. Doors open at 8:30 p.m., and performances start at 9.
