BJ Barham of American Aquarium at One Longfellow Square. For nearly a decade, the singer-songwriter—raised in a small North Carolina town called Reidsville—led the rising alt-country act called American Aquarium. In “Rockingham,” Barham’s remarkable and intensely personal solo debut, he found himself piecing together composites of people he’d known since childhood, of those folks and places who had impacted his life in fundamental ways. He sang into his cell phone and scribbled in notebooks, stealing away for quiet moments in order to put the melodies and characters floating through his mind into song. 8-11pm. $12.
