1/27: Lloyd Cole at the Wincester



Lloyd Cole is taking a low-key approach on his current tour, playing gigs accompanied by a three-piece acoustic group he calls the Small Ensemble. During these intimate shows, Cole looks back on his entire catalog, performing folk-inspired medleys that include snippets of many of his songs, including the Commotions-era “Rattlesnakes” and “Brand New Friend.” He also covers tracks that have inspired him over the years, like Leonard Cohen’s “Tower of Song” and Kris Kristofferson’s “Please Don’t Tell Me How the Story Ends.” Cole performs at 9 p.m. at the Winchester (12112 Madison Ave., 216.226.5681). Tickets: $15. — Ernest Barteldes
