Paper Route

Vinyl at Hard Rock Hotel, Oct. 27

Opening for the acclaimed act Switchfoot is no easy task. But the Nashville, Tenn.-based Paper Route made it look easy. With captivating front man J.T. Daly at the helm, Paper Route delivered a solid and lively performance to a dialed-in crowd. Performing tracks off their new album, The Peace of Wild Things, including “Better Life,” and new single “You and I” as well as fan favorites “Gutter” and “Dancing on Our Graves,” the group spanned their catalog of songs and made the most of their opening set. The only thing that could have made the evening better was if the band were headlining. ★★★☆☆

REVISITED: Have to tread carefully here. You see, I’m not a huge fan of Bob Dylan, who’s playing Mandalay Bay on Oct. 27 with Mark Knopfler opening ($69-$143). But I don’t mean to say that I’m not a fan at all: I like many of Dylan’s songs, and my respect for his songwriting and performing talents is genuine and true. But I’m not half the fan some of my friends are, and “real” Dylan fans think their alpha singer-songwriter is above reproach. Even when Dylan’s bad, they tell me, he’s brilliant.
