Winston Yellen spent the first 11 years of his life in northern California, then the next seven in Colorado Springs, but has found a home in Nashville. Under the stage name of Night Beds, Yellen is not among the slick, manufactured acts that gets molded on an assembly line. He comes from the outlaw singer-songwriter-inspired tradition, with a high and lonesome sound that not only describes his world-weary high tenor but also his spare, stripped-down musical accompaniment that accents, rather than overwhelms, his intimate songs. In a phone interview, Yellen initially went to a small college in Georgia on a soccer scholarship before hearing the siren song coming from Nashville and transferring to Music City's Belmont University. The move was right: last week he debuted on Jimmy Fallon's late-night show, and is about to embark on his second European tour. "The audiences were very polite," Tellen said of Eruope. "I'm more used to playing liquor stores."When • Friday at 7 p.m.Where • Kilby Court, 741 S. 330 West, Salt Lake CityTickets • $10 at 24Tix
