Nicole Wagner playing at the taproom

With a hint of whimsy (and a nod to her habit of rocking the occasional sequined dress), Wagner calls her music “sparklefolk” — but don’t let that handle fool you, because even some of her most playful-sounding songs (“The Rules of Baseball,” for instance) are often spiked with the kind of hard truths that can test the mettle of the strongest human heart. And on And the Sky Caught Fire, Wagner pulls no punches.
