Dan Bern

Bern’s a folksy troubadour with a rock ’n’ roll heart and the all-too-rare skill of combining humor and intelligence. Sometimes he rocks with a Tom Petty-like heartland rumble, at others he delivers his topical, astute lyrical musings with quiet acoustic backing. He’s at his best in a live setting, exuding charm, charisma and a touch of mischief. You can hear a bit of that on “Live in Los Angeles,” released last year, and the just-issued “Live in New York.” His latest studio recording is a children’s album called “Two Feet Tall,” which brings out his playful side.
8 p.m. Feb. 4. $18; $15 in advance. Eddie’s Attic, 515 N. McDonough St., Decatur. 404-377-4976.
