The penultimate date of modfather Paul Weller’s Autumn tour visits House of Blues on October 25, promoting his 13th solo full-length, A Kind Revolution, featuring contributions from Robert Wyatt and soul legend PP Arnold. The 59-year-old’s newest is yet another collaboration with mixer Jan “Stan” Kybert (Oasis, Björk, Massive Attack), who for several albums has added a welcome honing edge to Weller’s thick soulful singing and chord-y harmonic guitar. Weller originally made his mark with the Jam (1976–1982) and the Style Council (1983–1989), quickly becoming famous enough in his native England to be stalked by paparazzi, even suing one tabloid for publishing photos of his family. As he wraps up his monthlong tour, he could probably still walk around the Gaslamp Quarter sampling the bistros and be mistaken for a condo salesman or a boutique hotel clerk on a lunch break.
