Named Washington's "Artist of the Year" in 2003, Last Train Home has since relocated to Nashville. But any return gig to the region for the roots-rock band -- part rock, part blues, part bluegrass -- is like a homecoming. Frontman Eric Brace is a former Washington Post staff writer who joined the band in 1997 and never left. Saturday, July 7, at 9 p.m. IOTA Club and Cafe, 2832 Wilson Blvd., Arlington. Tickets are $14.
