9/19: Joshua Radin at the Beachland

Posted By on Mon, Sep 14, 2009 at 8:00 AM

It isn’t every day that an indie artist like Joshua Radin eases his way onto the charts. But this Ohio-born singer-songwriter’s latest album, Simple Times, debuted in the Top 40, powered mostly by positive word of mouth, relentless touring and a little help from Patty Griffin, who sings on the record. Radin owes much of his success to networking sites like MySpace, which first brought his music to a large audience. He’s also a favorite among TV tastemakers like Zach Braff, who lobbied to include Radin’s music on Scrubs. You can hear Radin all over television these days, and it serves as vindication of sorts: Before he launched a music career, Radin unsuccessfully tried to make it as a screenwriter. Gary Jules and Amber Rubarth open at 8:30 p.m. at the Beachland Ballroom (15711 Waterloo Rd., 216.383.1124). Tickets: $15. — Ernest Barteldes
