Jonathan Tyler / Nikki Lane / Paul Cauthen / Red Shahan at Granada Theater
Thor Christensen Recommends
Dallas singer-guitarist Jonathan Tyler has shifted course several times in recent years, splitting with Atlantic Records, then dropping his Northern Lights band name when someone claimed they’d trademarked that name and threatened to sue. But when it comes to New Year’s Eve, Tyler is staying on track with his 9th annual year-end show at the Granada Theater. Expect to hear lots of his trademark blues-rock jams along with more tender tunes including “To Love is To Fly,” a song from 2015’s Holy Smokes featuring South Carolina singer Nikki Lane. Lane will also perform an opening set, as will Texas singer-songwriters Paul Cauthen and Red Shahan.
