David Allan Coe, Rebel Son 

When: Sat., Feb. 12, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $20-25

There's no bigger redneck or renegade than David Allan Coe, but, for some, the legend has overshadowed the music. Coe's always possessed a cockeyed sense of humor, and he sells it with a pretense-free everyman style. Indeed, Coe has written many songs with Shel Silverstein, including some of the tracks on his notorious "blue" records. While Coe's certainly a redneck—he allegedly lived in a cave after an IRS seizure—he's clever like a Fox(worthy). His paeans to the outsider and blue collar-country concerns hit hard. —Chris Parker
