Critics' Pick: Slim Forsythe at Nied's

  • Slim Forsythe


You’ll find yourself toe-tapping along to swinging songs about trains and heartbreak when you don your ornately flowered Western shirt and make your way to Nied’s Hotel, in Lawrenceville, to catch local country stalwart Slim Forsythe. Born in 1956, and raised in Pittsburgh, Slim considers himself a “goodwill ambassador” for the Keystone State. I’m banking on hearing the punchy new single, “The Ballad of Punxsutawney Phil.” Or perhaps “Down on My Knees at Nied’s Hotel,” a duet Slim recorded on 7-inch vinyl with Molly Alphabet, and a tune that’s equal parts soaring fiddle and heart-wrenching lyrics.

7 p.m.
5438 Butler St., Lawrenceville.
Free. All ages.
