The Paisley Fields is a country band that could easily be heard on commercial radio, but what differentiates the Brooklyn act from the mainstream is its open approach to same-sex relationships. Frontman James Wilson grew up in Iowa and draws from influences such as Dolly Parton and Garth Brooks to write songs that reflect the modern world through his experiences as a gay man. The unique perspective that Wilson and PF members bring to the genre has led to 100,000 views on YouTube, a debut at No. 17 on the iTunes Charts and a sponsorship from Brooklyn Arts Council to record an album.

Thursday 10/29. No cover, 10pm. Fellini’s, 200 W. Market St. 979-4279.
