Bill Kirchen & Too Much Fun 

When: Fri., Jan. 28, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: $16

High reverb brings out the chomping twang of Bill Kirchen's Telecaster. Kirchen melds country, blues and rock to re-create bygone sounds of rockabilly and western swing. Over walking bass and shuffling drums, Kirchen's electric guitar rings out. Kirchen's muscular guitar may be best known from his work on "Hot Rod Lincoln"—a number he recorded with Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen in 1972—but he's been playing steadily for more than 40 years. On his latest release, last year's Word to the Wise, Kirchen was joined by Elvis Costello, Dan Hicks and Nick Lowe. That company not good enough for you? —Andrew Ritchey
