Dexter Romweber & the New Romans, John Howie Jr & the Rosewood Bluff, Third Expression

When: Thu., Feb. 23, 9 p.m. 2012

Those expecting explosive chemistry between rockabilly enthusiasts Dex Romweber and producer Rick Miller may have been disappointed with 2009's smoky, jazz-inflected Ruins of Berlin. Anticipation makes the payoff more intense, though, so it's hard to imagine how last year's Is That You in the Blue? could be more exciting. From canny covers like the Orbison-inflected country of "Nowhere" and a howling take on rockabilly chestnut "Homicide" to fiery originals like "Jungle Drums," it's a perfect retrospective of Romweber's many musical moods. He's joined tonight by his full band, the New Romans. John Howie Jr.'s Rosewood Bluff exchanges his longtime George Jones fascination for a Haggard country-rock bite. With The Third Expression. —Chris Parker
