J Roddy Walston & the Business 

When: Fri., Dec. 3, 9:30 p.m. 2010
Price: $8

You may not believe it just yet, but Baltimore's J. Roddy Walston and the Business is quickly becoming a serious contender for the title of best bar band in America, holding its own versus heavyweights like The Hold Steady and Titus Andronicus. Combining the former's penchant for instantly singable anthems with the unhinged, whiskey-fueled moxie of the latter, Walston's songwriting may fall a bit short of both, but not by much. Lending a touch of boogie-woogie to the beefy, boozy roots rock of the swaggering Business, the livewire energy of Walston's piano pounding will likely distract you from any small shortcomings. —Spencer Griffith
