"Buck Off!" Buck Owens Birthday Tribute with John Howie Jr & the Rosewood Bluff, Bo-Stevens, Brett Harris Band, guest vocalists 

When: Fri., Aug. 12, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $7-10

A cavalcade of terrific local artists celebrate Buck Owens' birthday. Opener Brett Harris is an odd choice, offering pretty, keenly crafted pop that harks back to the Beatles and lushly arranged Brill Building writers. Winston-Salem's the Bo-Stevens keep more with the evening's spirit with heartbroken, honky-tonk alcoholic malingering. Triangle fixture John Howie Jr. and his band the Rosewood Bluff follow with a bit more rocking brand of country, captained by Howie's bracing baritone. The evening concludes with the Rosewood Bluff accompanying more than a half-dozen Triangle musicians on a spree of Owens covers. —Chris Parker
