Tom Maxwell CD release, Justin Robinson & the Mary Annettes 

When: Fri., June 10, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $8-11

It's easy to lose sight of Tom Maxwell's talent. Though he wrote the Squirrel Nut Zippers' biggest song and many other fine cuts, his departure was acrimonious, and he's released but a single solo album since, 2000's middling Samsara. He's played out periodically, but it takes something like Kingdom Come to remind us of just how good he is. This eclectic 14-track album shines completely, from his irreverent country ode about a shoplifted Piggly Wiggly, "Ham," to the sophisticated baroque mien of "Fuck It," from the supple swing of "So High" to the lively garage-abilly rave-up of "Jump Over Here and Love Me." This is a witty, masterful tour de force deserving of re-recognition. With Justin Robinson & the Mary Annettes. —Chris Parker
