Dave Crossland knows the heartland.  The acoustic balladeer and songwriter has lived in Michigan and Nashville and wrote his college honors thesis on Woody Guthrie.  The vocalist has also graduated from opener to headliner, just like his Boston peers Ellis Paul, Dar Willliams, and Catie Curtis.  Described as one of the most promising voices on the Boston folk scene, he performs tonight at 8:30 at Johnny D's.  Jim Infantino (from Jim's Big Ego) opens the show.  Tickets: $7.  Johnny D's, 17 Holland St., Davis Square, Somerville, 617-776-2004.  johnnyds.com [June Wuilff]
