John Cale and Cass McCombs 

When: Sun., Dec. 9, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $29.50-$48

Concord native Cass McCombs is one of the Bay Area's indie folk-meets-punk success stories. He found slivers of critical limelight playing gigs while shlepping from city to city, aimlessly, for years. It wasn't until he finally settled down in San Francisco that he began growing musically, putting out his first EP in 2002. He has released six albums over the past nine years, including 2009's Catacombs, which is rife with gold. If you've never had the honor of listening to McCombs, a good place to start is Catacombs' star track "Dreams-Come-True Girl," one of the more beautiful love songs out there (the kind ZooeyDeschanel probably wishes were about her). McCombs will, fittingly, be opening for the hugely influential John Cale, who is most known for founding the protopunk band The Velvet Underground with Lou Reed, though his solo work has extended to new folk and classical music. At The Regency Ballroom (1300 Van Ness Ave., San Francisco) on Monday, Dec. 9. 8 p.m., $29.50, $48.
