The Backsliders, Erin Nenni Band 

When: Sat., Dec. 15, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $8-10

In 1996, at the height of their record-industry buzz and just after they'd made their major-label debut, The Backsliders got quiet at The Brewery: "If you can't seem to find me," bandleader Chip Robinson sang, his times-and-tales-pocked voice nestled within the boys' stately shuffle, "Well you know just where I've been/ Somewhere out there on that crazy wind." Said wind serves as a fitting description of the missed opportunities that soon followed The Backsliders, who broke up three years later as the spoils of the alt-country slot machine went to other players. They've reunited occasionally and have recently spoken of a busy 2013; tonight, Robinson will lead the quartet without guitarist Brad Rice. Expect them to slip between quiet grace and raucous upheaval, the duality-cum-mutualism that long ago made The Backsliders one of the country's best rock 'n' roll bands. With Erin Nenni Band. —Grayson Currin
