Neil Finn

Neil Finn has been making the musical progression from reckless youth (he joined his brother’s band, Split Enz, at age 18) to pop craftsman (Crowded House) to, on his last couple of solo discs, melancholy crooner. Finn’s rich, textured vocals and whimsical and songwriting make him one of the most underrated performers of the last two decades. Count yourself lucky to be able to see him in such an intimate setting as the Fine Line, with his teenage son, who is also an adept guitarist in his own right. Finn’s recent sets mostly include later stuff, but you’re bound to get a golden oldie or two from his Split Enz and Crowded House days. Fine Line, 318 1st Ave. N, (612) 338-8100,
