Blackberry Smoke, Rebel Son 

When: Thu., Nov. 17, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-15

If you transplanted Springsteen to Georgia, fed him a steady diet of NASCAR, Hatchet and Skynyrd, and gave him some lead paint, a pickup and a fifth of Jack, he'd have made a Little Piece of Dixie, just like Blackberry Smoke. They're essentially a hat-country version of Southern rock, with fist-in-the-air blue-collar anthems that extend past Saturday night into the cold light of Sunday morning. They're Nashville Pussy played straight-faced, declaring, "I'm a Southern man, can you love me like I am?" They undoubtedly do a mean "Free Bird," and if that's all you need, it's here in spades. With Rebel Son, maybe the most mystifying act in the state. Tickets to the 8 p.m. show are $12 in advance, —Chris Parker
