Jason & the Scorchers 

When: Sat., Jan. 7, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $15-$18

It's no wonder that music is a line of nostalgia and what critic Simon Reynolds calls "Retromania"; it's written into the softest love songs we adore and our heavy metal obsessed with homelands. As such, it's no wonder that Jason & the Scorchers continue to burn the reunion rails, after having already done it once before in the '90s before again calling it quits. This time, the Scorchers are riding the 30th anniversary wave and an album called Halcyon Times, a title that doesn't fit their legacy as a precursor for the tides of bands who've taken their mix of punk and country as a sacred, blessed original sin. —Grayson Currin
