Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit

Jason Isbell’s forthcoming LP Weathervanes, his first album of originals since 2020’s Reunions, takes a hard look at…having some growing up to do. At its core, it’s songs played for, and by, grown ass people, as Isbell might put it. Whereas some music connects to the eternal youth in us all (“I Don’t Wanna Grow Up”), Weathervanes faces the inevitable, and the choices we make in dealing with it all: Life and death, the myths and dangers, regret and redemption, and ultimately – and this is the hardest one – learning to love oneself.

Weathervanes will be out June 9, but before that, you have a few opportunities to see Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit at ACL Live at The Moody Theater. They perform tonight, tomorrow night and Saturday. Doors at 6:30 p.m. all three nights, and AMM fave Amythyst Kiah opens the show each night.
