Bottle Rockets, Rayland Baxter Band 

When: Thu., April 28, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $10-$15

Call them Uncle Tupelo's kid brother. The Bottle Rockets are spiritual forefathers of the post-millennial indie roots revival and direct predecessors of the Luceros, Slobberbones and Drive-By Truckers of the world. Started by former Tupelo sideman and guitar tech Brian Henneman in 1992, the Rockets write smart and tuneful countrified/ Southern guitar rock as well as anyone who's followed. If there were any justice they would've broken out as large as Black Crowes, because Henneman's blue collar attitude and wily smart-ass wit are a lot more interesting than anything ever said to angels. Their last two—2006's Zoysia and 2009's Lean Forward—are among their best.—Chris Parker
