Mark Lanegan

When local guitarist Jeff Fielder was hired by silky-sweet Scottish vocalist Isobel Campbell to contribute to her latest project with Mark Lanegan, his life took some pretty dramatic turns for the better. Campbell’s starkly contrasting collaborator took an instant liking to Fielder’s versatility as a player and later—after several European tours—their shared sense of humor as traveling companions. Tonight’s show will not only mark the Neptune Theater’s maiden voyage as a music venue, but the first time the two men have occupied a Seattle stage without the accompaniment of any other musicians. Expect a broad and deep survey of Lanegan’s back catalog, including a nod to his grunge-era incarnation within the Screaming Trees. With Sean Wheeler, Zander Schloss. HANNAH LEVIN
