Rival Sons

The Pressroom : 7:30 p.m. September 21

Nowadays, the revival of bluesy psychedelic rock and soul from the 1960s and '70s has found a strong following -- maybe it's the fuzzy twang of the guitar, the vocals that just drip with angst and passion.

What happens when you layer dynamic, symphonic arrangements, painfully guttural vocals, and a wicked viola player?

Slim Cessna's Auto Club

Rhythm Room : 8:00 p.m. September 24

For as long as the folk songs of hillbillies and Appalachian wailers have been called "country songs," the genre has been the province of those tip-toeing between grace and damnation -- Hank Williams, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, the Louvin Brothers, and others for whom the pursuit of holiness...
