Robbie Fulks Duo, Tom Meltzer, Dave Wilson 

When: Fri., Jan. 28, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $12-15

Robbie Fulks cut his teeth in the Chicago bluegrass act Special Consensus in the '80s before embarking on a solo career marked by an adventurous blend of what's often called roots music. Rockabilly, country, folk, blues—it's all in his repertoire. Fulks delivers it with a swaggering baritone and wicked sense of humor, whether he's noting a bar grown "toxic with smoke and self-regard," offering the matter-of-fact epitaph "She Took a Lot Of Pills (And Died)" or savaging Nashville, complaining, "They can't stop the flood of assholes; there ain't a big enough ASCAP." Last year, he released Happy, a long-shelved album of offbeat Michael Jackson covers. —Chris Parker
