The Low Czars, Aaron Scholz at Bur Oak
September 21 @ 7:00 pm - 11:59 pm$8 – $10
Aaron Scholz is shown sitting on a couch, holding his acoustic guitar, crossing his legs, and looking directly at the camera.
Aaron Scholz has been a busy member of Madison’s music community for more than 20 years, but for a long time the original songs he wrote as a solo artist were somewhat on ice. A 15-year gap between actual Aaron Scholz albums ended with the 2021 release of Third Place. Built on a solid, crisp acoustic foundation, standout tracks like “Dorothy Door” and “St. Paul” contemplate forgotten places and overlooked people, but the lyrics are never exactly bleak, nor is the music. If anything, Scholz excels at making loneliness feel comforting and familiar. If any one line on the album sums it up, it’s on the closing track “The Place,” when Scholz sings: “I never hesitate to get out of the way.”
Scholz opens with a solo set here and then performs as a member of the excellent cover band The Low Czars.
