It's been more than since Florida folk singer Sam Beam recorded a cover of the Postal Service's "Such Great Heights" that was nearly inescapable for a few years. After a few records that ditched the  restrained and hushed songcraft of Beam's original records, the latest Iron and Wine album, Beast Epic, smartly dials back the studio gloss and focuses on captivating lyricism. Listen closely, and you'll hear Beam grapple with the ceasless march of time as well as the joys and indignities of aging. On October 12, local trio Ohmme opens the show, while alt-country singer-songwriter John Moreland supports of October 13.
