Chris Isaak/Kat Edmondson

When: Fri., Nov. 16, 8 p.m. 2012

Hard to believe it’s been almost 30 years since pretty boy singer-songwriter Chris Isaak made his major-label debut with Silvertone, a disc of roots rock with an eerie enough vibe that movie director David Lynch put two of its songs on his creepy cult hit Blue Velvet. Lynch would return to that musical well for his 1990 film Wild at Heart, which featured “Wicked Game,” the twisted love song for which Isaak is most readily known. A collection of covers of old rock tunes from the Sun Records catalogue that Isaak actually recorded at the Sun studios, his latest album, Beyond the Sun, doesn’t exactly cast the classics in a new light, but it does show just how well Isaak’s rich voice has aged.
