Sometimes, there's a night with a ridiculous number of shows competing for attention (made even worse when it's during the week, when many won't venture out) -- Thursday's a perfect example.

Wednesday, April 9

Butch Hancock / The Wilhelms
Off Broadway (3509 Lemp)
7 p.m. door, 7:30 p.m. start; $15 advance/$18 door (+3 20-under; all-ages, but 17-under must be with an adult)     

Butch Hancock (Lubbock, Texas) resides in the upper echelon of the storied world of Texas singer-songwiters. 

The Wilhelms feature two veteran folk-roots musicians -- Andy Ploof and John Wendland (both of Rough Shop) -- exploring duo sounds.

-----

It's a Ladies' Night edition of Stag Nite at Livery Company (3211 Cherokee).  Leslie Sanazaro, Rebecca Ryan, Irene Allen, Sheila Shapiri and Lizzie Weber will perform.  This starts around 9 with a $5 cover (21+ only). 

Thursday, April 10

Diesel Island
Schlafly Bottleworks (7260 Southwest)
7 p.m. start; free (all-ages; minors only with an adult)

An evening full of '70s and '80s country jukebox covers -- heavy on the outlaw -- from Diesel Island.

Reverend Horton Heat featuring Deke Dickerson / Nekromantix
Plush (3224 Locust)
7:30 p.m. door, 8:30 p.m. start; $20 advance/$23 door (18+ only)  

Classic rocka-/psycho-/punka-billy sounds from stalwarts Reverend Horton Heat (Dallas), who've been gettin' it done for more than two decades now, made even more awesome tonight by some axemanship from the pride of Columbia, Mo. -- Deke Dickerson.

Similar sounds -- with dark lyrical themes -- from Nekromantix (Denmark).

Bailiff / The Feed / Divino Niño
Off Broadway (3509 Lemp)
8 p.m. door, 9 p.m. start; $10 (+3 20-under; all-ages, but 17-under must be with an adult)

Bailiff (Chicago) offer a singular, varied sound, playing rock dabbling in reggae riffs and other groove and beat-centered styles.

Skillful, potent rock with a bluesy touch from the Feed. 

Unknown sounds from Divino Niño (Chicago).

-----

If the brutal winter and slow-to-get-going spring have left you craving warmth and sunshine, you can mentally transport yourself to warm Jamaican climes with a night of ska and rocksteady sounds from the Slackers (New York City), the Bishops (Omaha, Neb.) and our own Rocksteady Flyers at Firebird (2706 Olive). Door at 8 p.m., show at 9 p.m., with a $15 cover (all-ages). 

-----

Sidney Street Shakers / The Loot Rock Gang / The Thin Dimes
Schlafly Tap Room (2100 Locust)
9 p.m. start; free (all-ages, minors only with an adult)

This brewhouse will feel more like a "speakeasy" tonight, courtesy of these acts.  Sidney Street Shakers are a newish group (including members of the Pokey LaFarge band) playing old-time jazz, heavy on the Dixieland. 

A blend of vintage jazz, blues and rhythm sounds from the Loot Rock Gang. 

Energetic, vintage-styled folk, bluegrass and blues sounds from the Thin Dimes.

Your Humble Servant,
