MARTIN SEXTON8:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $20.
Just weeks before he embarks on the Mayercraft Carrier II cruise (that'd be John Mayer's concert cruise from L.A. to Cabo), Martin Sexton
comes to town for an intimate solo gig. In more than a decade of touring and releasing albums, the Boston-born singer/songwriter's carved out an impressive resume. He won the National Academy of Songwriters' Artist of the Year Award. He's recorded for Atlantic and on his own. His song “Diner” recently got prominent time on “Scrubs,” and two years ago, another song, “Happy,” landed on number one in the adult alternative charts. Perhaps most impressively, lover of fine music and avid concertgoer John Mayer calls him “the best live performer I've ever seen.” Should be packed.
