DaShawn Hickman 

When: Sat., June 12, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $8

Inside his House of God church, DaShawn Hickman plays praise music. Hickman falls into the sacred steel tradition, using the bent notes of his pedal steel guitar to lament, repent and exalt. Outside of church, though, all-encompassing reverie quickly transforms into hypnotic groove. Gospel and soul are noticeable influences—or descendants—especially on slower numbers that ache with emotion. The 29-year-old joined his cousins as a member of The Allen Boys but is now working on his own quartet, Steel Moven. Drums and electric guitar chug ahead, creating a train of blues and country-fried Southern rock. Hickman's pedal steel cries out like the triumphant train whistle, holding all of these influences together. —Andrew Ritchey
