Shooter Jennings & Hierophant 

When: Thu., Sept. 16, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $15-18

Making three albums of outlaw country-rock was an obvious move for Waylon Jennings' boy, Shooter. That's not to disparage the music, but Jennings proves far more adventurous on his first post-major label foray, Black Ribbons. The apocalyptic, psych-prog rock concept album's deeply informed by Roger Waters (The Final Cut meets Radio KAOS) and conspiracy-minded anti-government rhetoric (see the Bilderberg Group). Smart and sonically vigorous, it explores an expansive palette from slow-burn ballads to groovy rockers and billowing art rock, even finding room for the hilarious self-deprecating satire of "Fuck You (I'm Famous)" and interstitial narration by Stephen King. Black Ribbons completely rewrites the book on Jennings. He plays tonight with his new band, Hierophant, after A Thousand Horses opens at 9 p.m.—Chris Parker
