Preview: Cass McCombs @ The Sinclair 12.1.13
by Ben Stas (Journalism/English), published December 2nd 2013
Cass McCombs is a versatile, classically American singer/songwriter with a decade-deep career that already spans seven albums. His latest is entitled Big Wheel and Others, and it’s arguably his grandest statement yet. The double LP unfolds across 22 songs and nearly 90 minutes of sprawling Americana and lyrical storytelling. There’s flashes of everyone from Dylan to Bill Callahan in McCombs’ songwriting, but the end result is always uniquely his own.
McCombs has embarked on a fall tour in support of the record with a full band in tow, and they’ll appear at The Sinclair in Cambridge this very night. Tickets for the show are available online here.
