It doesn’t get much more laconic than the longhaired Matador artist Kurt Vile — at least on the surface. Beneath his outward mellow vibes are angsty songs and accomplished guitar melodies with the stoned breeze of ’70s Laurel Canyon wafting through ’90s indie rock influenced by the likes of Neil Young. This solid bill also features a great opener with the Canadian alt country of the Sadies, who have played with acts including the Mekons and Neko Case. 7:30 p.m. $20.50 - $23.50. All ages. thenationalva.com.
