This three-part bill toes and sometimes trips over the line between country and rock. Michael Rank & STAG might have grown tired of comparisons to The Rolling Stones, but their music continues to explore that deep influence by twisting between bellicose and bleary-eyed reflections. Meanwhile, Magnolia Collective looks at society askance, treating class inequality and love troubles almost as insidious conspiracy theories worth a broadside. They cast those troubles out in smoldering rock tunes, informed equally by Neil Young and outlaw country.
