Sun 1/22
Jim Lauderdale


Bluegrass is like the Swedish death metal of country music. Seriously, if you threw some distortion on the banjos and mandolins, then maybe slid that major key into the relative minor to make it sadder, you’d have the most aloof of death metal fans emotionlessly nodding in approval. Basically, more of you should try out Jim Lauderdale if you haven't already, because he's the best of the best in the bluegrass department. With 27 albums released over the course of several decades, and a Grammy for best bluegrass album, Lauderdale is sure to deliver a taste of hyper strumming and technical finger work to get that foot tappin’. 7pm, $18-$75, Sam’s Burger Joint, 330 E. Grayson St.
