Chip Robinson Benefit with Alejandro Escovedo & Buck Jones, Patty Hurst Shifter, Mexican Terrarium, Tres Chicas 

When: Sun., Nov. 21, 4 p.m. 2010
Price: $20

On a November Sunday almost seven years ago to the day, 80 percent of The Backsliders reunited as one of the highlights of a noon-to-past-midnight bill in Raleigh assembled in support of an ailing Alejandro Escovedo. Chip Robinson prowled the stage, threatening sheriffs and heaving rocks moonward. A hip injury suffered in a bicycle accident has put Robinson's prowling on hold; now it will be Escovedo highlighting a concert to raise funds for Robinson's medical bills. Call it alt-karma.

Backing Escovedo will be the Buck Jones Band, a group—to borrow the title from The Flatlanders' ill-fated debut—that's more a legend than a band. Formed on what started out as a slow night at Raleigh's former Lakeside Lounge, the band consists of Marc Smith, Skillet Gilmore and ex-Cry of Lover and Bottle Rocket/current Skynyrd-ite Robert Kearns, in addition to Escovedo and Robinson. In light of a contract that ostensibly calls for just one appearance every 10 years, you probably should catch the Buck Jones Band. Also filling the Southland air will be the silvery harmony rock of Tres Chicas, the small-town hymns of A Mexican Terrarium and the pensive but crunchy guitar rock of a fully reunited Patty Hurst Shifter. —Rick Cornell
