Kings of Leon take over the Wells Fargo Center tonight, with support from blues rock musician Gary Clark, Jr.  The Tennessee natives (and family band) released their sixth studio record Mechanical Bull in September.  XPN Fest alum Gary Clark, Jr. has been getting a lot of mileage out of his 2012 LP Blak and Blu, winning a Grammy Award for the Best Traditional R&B performance with his song “Please Come Home” earlier this year.  Tickets and information can be found here. Check out Kings of Leon’s video for “Beautiful War” below.

New Orleans guitarist Anders Osborne plays World Cafe Live tonight.  The roots rocker released his new LP Peace on Alligator Records last year, following up 2012′s Black Eyed Galaxy and a 2013 EP called Three Free Amigos.  He has stated that the songs on Peace come from a brighter and clearer place than the those on his recent efforts, and lead single “47″ is proof of that with its autobiographical clarity and reflective lyrics.  Tickets and information for the all-ages show can be found here.
