As luck sometimes has it, the two shows I'm most looking forward to this week are on the same night.
Thu (7/9) - Jimbo Mathus & the Tri-State Coalition @ Rooster's
Jimbo is one of the greatest showmen in the area. He simply knows how to entertain a crowd. This is honky-tonk music at its best.
Thu (7/9) - Rocket 88 (acoustic trio version) @ Blind Pig
My favorite Oxford band always puts on a good show in the cozy confines of the Blind Pig. I'll be catching as much of this one as possible when Jimbo and crew have some down time.
Jimbo Mathus & the Tri-State Coalition - "Tell it to the Judge"
Rocket 88 with Mayhem String Band - "King Moonshine"
@ Music in the Hall
