Lyle Lovett, with John Hiatt

When: Wed., Oct. 7 2009

Although he never had the celebrity wife or the Eraserhead hair that tourmate Lyle Lovett once sported, John Hiatt has done just fine as a singer, songwriter and guitarist. The only artist to have been covered by both Iggy Pop and Paula Abdul, Hiatt found his biggest inroad into the pop consciousness as the writer of Bonnie Raitt's massively successful "Thing Called Love." But for my money, if I had any, the song to remember would be "Perfectly Good Guitar," in which Hiatt laments how it breaks his heart to see those stars smashing a perfectly good guitar. The duo will ply their wares at 8 tonight in the perfectly great acoustics of the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., pikespeakcenter.com), with tickets ranging from $49.50 to $65. — Bill Forman
