Music: Steve Earle 

Fri., June 12

Oscar Wilde claimed, "Life imitates art far more than art imitates life." Not so in STEVE EARLE's case. Like his character Walon on HBO's Peabody Award-winning series "The Wire," Earle is no stranger to addiction. An alum of the school of hard knocks – heroin dependency, a fistful of failed marriages and run-ins with the law – Earle left the jailhouse a better man: racking up multiple Grammys; publishing a play and a collection of short stories; and taking on political activism in strong stances against the death penalty and War on Terror. Earle delivers his lyrics, like his lines, in a thoughtful, syrupy drawl at the Atlanta Botanical Garden with Joe Pug in support of Townes, a 15-song offering penned by the late singer/songwriter Townes Van Zandt. $35. 8 p.m. 1345 Piedmont Ave. 404-249-6400. www.concertsinthegarden.org.
