Chris Knight, BJ Barham, Michael Rank & Marc Smith 

When: Fri., Sept. 28, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $15

If Springsteen had grown up in rural Kentucky coal country, he'd probably sound a lot like Chris Knight. Knight developed a style informed by Steve Earle's early rebellious works and John Prine's dry biting wit. His characters are typically desperate, debauched or fed up, and they come to life in Knight's hands. Some can't hang themselves for the cost of "Enough Rope," while others take what charity won't provide, as in the powerful gunpoint admonition "If I Were You." Knight's latest, Little Victories, is his hardest-hitting to date, like outlaw county if smarts were declared illegal. Tonight, he is the must-see. With BJ Barham of American Aquarium and Michael Rank & Marc Smith of Stag. —Chris Parker
