Event Pick: The Milk Carton Kids at the Modlin Center for the Arts 

Oct. 28

There is nothing scarier than dudes playing folk music. Like bad poetry readings, stand-up comedy and getting caught masturbating, earnest acoustic strummers have the demoralizing ability to make everybody witnessing them queasy with embarrassment. That’s what makes the Milk Cartoon Kids so special — the Grammy Award-winning duo craft folk music that doesn’t make you recoil in horror. Whether or not you’re a fan of the genre, these Californians are simply undeniable. The modern Simon and Garfunkel bring their deeply moving brand of flat-picked soul to the intimate Camp Concert Hall at the Modlin Center for the Arts on Friday, Oct. 28. I kid you not: Listening to the Milk Cartoon Kids makes a sometimes bitter curmudgeon like me giddy with optimism and hopeful for the future. Defined by its harmonious intimacy, this is music that will change your world for the better. Doors open for the humanity restoration at 7:30 p.m. Vance Gilbert opens. $10-$28. modlin.richmond.edu.
