Orville Peck rides high into Rialto Theatre.
Once you get past the fringed Lone Ranger mask, no other conclusion can be drawn: This Canadian musician can croon with the best of them. "The mask exists as a point of discussion," he told the New York Times. On "Dead of Night," this masked crooner eerily channels the ghost of Roy Orbison, as he sings a lonesome hymn to the "incredibly talented women" at the Chicken Ranch brothel: Where the West is still wild. "Stark, hollow town, Carson city lights/Baby, let's get high/Spend a Johnny's cash, hitch another ride/We laugh until we cry." Recently appearing on the cover of British GQ, enigmatic country singer Orville Peck rides high into Rialto Theatre.
