The Beets’ frontman Juan Wauters moves his punk form into sentimental folk on his solo debut. The Beets’ frontman Juan Wauters moves his punk form into sentimental folk on his solo debut.

When Juan Wauters emigrated from Uruguay to Queens, New York in the early aughts, he brought a love of music that was nurtured into maturity in the borough that brought us the Ramones. In his debut solo record, N.A.P. North American Poetry, Wauters delivers effortless hooks and sentimental lyrics with a heavy folk influence. The live show is a collaboration between Wauters, a rotating cast of diverse musicians, and “official artist” Matthew Volt, whose painted banners and manual light show heightens the performance to a mood altering, memorable experience.

Thursday 3/6. $7, 9pm. Twisted Branch Tea Bazaar, 414 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 293-9947.
