Vagabond troubadour Jerry Joseph returns home for three shows, each one featuring a varied assortment of notable local musicians joining him onstage.
Saturday's intimate acoustic set at Lola's features an opening set by Ashleigh Flynn and the Decemberists' Chris Funk, who do double duty as part of Joseph's band that evening.

Jenny Conlee of the Decemberists and Little Sue also join Joseph for his New Year's Eve performance - his first holidayshow in town in six years. Richmond Fontaine opens the show Sunday; Casey Neill and the Norway Rats do the honors on Monday.
