Salim Nourallah, Wreckless Eric

The Fab Four are the typical RIYL reference for Denton’s Salim Nourallah, though for my money, I’d go with Elliott Smith. From the haircut to the cutting language of his five albums, Nourallah carries the depth and bittersweet joy of that late Oregon prophet. On “The Quitter,” from a perfect Smithian perspective, it’s hard to tell if the hook — “You’re the Quitter,” repeated like a father over and over to a washout teen — is directed toward himself, toward audience members or all of the above. From the deep south of England, Wreckless Eric is known for his ’77 two-chord Rickenbacker masterpiece “(I’d Go The) Whole Wide World.” Featuring Nick Lowe on guitar, the pub-rock staple has been covered by artists including Elvis Costello, Mikal Cronin, The Monkees and Will Ferrell. With jovial quartet, Buttercup. $15-$45, 8pm, Sam's Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson St, (210) 223-2830
