A beauty in ‘Beast’

JOSH RITTER & THE ROYAL CITY BAND When Ritter had his heart broken after his marriage dissolved, he did what any self-respecting singer-songwriter would do: He turned it into lyrical gold. At once wounded and hopeful, “The Beast in Its Tracks,” his latest album, is among Ritter’s best work. The Felice Brothers, who know a thing or two about broken hearts themselves, are the opening act. May 17, 8 p.m. Tickets: $29-$39. House of Blues. 800-745-3000, www.livenation.com James Reed
