When Joan Baez covered his “Song at the End of the Movie” on her 1979 album “Honest Lullaby,” Pierce Pettis’ musical career took off. Pettis became heavily involved in the 1980s New York folk movement alongside artists such as Shawn Colvin and Suzanne Vega. None of his 10 albums has made Pettis a household name, but his music is quite popular with other artists, including Garth Brooks (“You Move Me” on “Sevens”). He has an upcoming release with The New Agrarians. 8 p.m. June 29, European Street Café, 5500 Beach Blvd., Southside, $15, 399-1740, europeanstreet.com.
