Boise concert news: My Morning Jacket, Jason Isbell, more

Summer just started looking better if you appreciate talented, truly inspiring performers — not to mention air conditioned rooms.

Outstanding rock band My Morning Jacket and critically hailed Americana performer Jason Isbell will perform indoors at separate concerts announced today by Boise-area venues. Here are the details on those, plus more Monday concert news:

• OK, it’s actually not until fall: My Morning Jacket will headline Oct. 6 at the Revolution Center in Garden City. I can’t recommend this band enough. I’ve seen MMJ twice, and both times I was blown away. Front man Jim James, above, is one of those rare talents who exudes “rock star” from his pores. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. May 9 for $35 general admission, $65 VIP, at

• Jason Isbell put out the

best record of 2013

. His raucous, alcohol-troubled days with the Drive-By Truckers are behind him, but he’s discovered a new level of songwriting excellence. Plus, he’s a fantastic singer, storyteller and guitarist. Isbell will headline Aug. 4 at the Morrison Center in Boise. Tickets go on sale at noon May 8 for $35 and $45 at

• Also announced today:

Red

is headed to the Knitting Factory on June 23. And the

Clumsy Lovers

will play a Nov. 20 gig at the Knit.
