Band of Heathens

Band of Heathens, Seth Walker, Kennebec 

When: Fri., Aug. 12, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-13

Even on first listens, it's hard not to go, "OK, who wrote this song originally?" Band of Heathens draws on lyrical truism and familiar melody as expertly as a pop country band; it's not hard to sing along, even if you're hearing it for the first time. Yet, instead of modern Nashville glitter, Band of Heathens' boogie swing calls to mind a lower-octane take on ZZ Top's good-times blues rock, or maybe a folkier Alabama. Expect jamming aplenty and a well-worn, hand-me-down feel. This is a good call for anyone looking to unplug completely. If that's you, Band of Heathens wins the round. Seth Walker and Kennebec open. —Jordan Lawrence
