According to Publishers Weekly, Steve Katz’s new memoir Blood, Sweat, and My Rock ’n’ Roll Years: Is Steve Katz a Rock Star? has maybe the most spectacular revelation yet of any Rock memoir.

Jayme Stone’s Lomax Project

Tuesday • Southgate House Revival (Sanctuary)

The idea behind Jayme Stone’s all-star group, Lomax Project, is so brilliant it leads one to wonder why no one has thought of it before. Alan Lomax was the legendary song-catcher and in-the-field recorder who went out into rural areas, wrong sides of the tracks and the outskirts of America in the ’30s, ’40s and ’50s to collect obscure ethnic Folk music. Lomax took along a portable reel-to-reel tape recorder and captured the music of many unknown artists who would go on to be recognized by the larger population.

Japanese music culture has always been adept at absorbing Western musical forms and translating them into familiar but distinctly new concepts. Shonen Knife may have begun as a de facto Ramones tribute, but the band has grown into a unique sonic entity that embraces all genres and reconfigures them into its own singular sound. Given that, what can we make of Peelander-Z?   

Prophet, Sharing

The collaborative-minded Chuck Prophet’s latest, Night Surfer, is one of the best albums of his storied career

Chuck Prophet is making some of the best music of his career. Jangly, unique and rocking, Prophet’s jams should be reaching a bigger audience. But fickleness and modern tastes don’t always coincide with true creativity that may be lying in the grass like a snake.  

Liz Longley with Brian Wright

While there is now a genre of music officially called Americana — a category that can either be characterized as full of diverse artists who aren’t afraid of mixing Roots music in with their sound or as a way to promote and market artists who can’t get on Country radio — there is still an unfortunate desire to drag artists like Liz Longley into the Country music miasma.  

6 String Drag with Hannah Aldridge

Band reunions can be joyful, fist-pumping celebrations or dismal funeral services for long deceased entities that should never have been exhumed. If you’re scoring at home, Roots Rock ‘N’ Roll, the first new 6 String Drag album in 18 years, belongs deliriously in the celebratory category.  

The Whiskey Charmers with Straw Boss

Thursday • Southgate House Revival (Lounge)

If it’s possible to get drunk on sound alone, The Whiskey Charmers’ intoxicating self-titled debut album will do it. And it’s utterly unfathomable for me to comprehend how something that sounds like a soundtrack to a spaghetti western’s most sexy boudoir scene could possibly come from Detroit. And yet …  

Somebody’s Darling with The Whiskey Shambles

It’s hard to stand out in the crowded Blues/Roots Rock field but Dallas-based Somebody’s Darling is a stacked deck of secret weapons.   

Edward David Anderson with Slick Willy & the Kentucky Jellies

Thursday • Southgate House Revival (Lounge)

Many will remember Edward David Anderson from the rootsy Rock band Backyard Tire Fire, in which he wrote virtually every song the band performed and recorded. When the group opened for Los Lobos a few years ago, Steve Berlin was listening backstage and was instantly impressed. That led to Berlin producing Anderson’s excellent new album, Lies & Wishes.
