These United States, Henry Clay People 

When: Thu., July 5, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $9-11

These United States bandleader Jesse Elliott could be Langhorne Slim's acid-dropping brother. Both possess a scraggly baritone, ne'er-do-well charm and keen sense of showmanship, all in service of ramshackle roots-rock. But, where Slim's dedicated to simplicity, Elliott's atheprodigal bard with a florid manner and woolly imagination. In his heart, he's much more of a rocker, meaning his music sounds like a strange blend of the Replacements and Neil Young directed through a Flying Burrito Brothers/cosmic-country phase. Elliott's use of metaphor is frequently inventive, while the scope of his tales sometimes aims for "Subterranean Homesick Blues" highs. $9–$11/9 p.m. —Chris Parker
