Pokey LaFarge & the South City Three, Dirt Daubers 

When: Fri., Nov. 16, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $10-12

If Pokey LaFarge hadn't been born, NPR would've created him. He epitomizes the cultured, once-again trendy brand of swinging pre-World War II Americana last championed by listeners of This American Life. Sophistication's no shame, and LaFarge plays with great feel and reverence. Still, the form's novelty's faded considerably since Jolie Holland raided it for 2003's Catalpa. After six years of recording and touring, LaFarge and his band, the South City Three, are as tight as Delta Rae is polished, but their zeal makes them sound fresher, despite the moldy source material. With the Dirt Daubers. —Chris Parker
