Jimbo Mathus & the Tri-State Coalition

When: Sat., Jan. 28, 9 p.m. 2012

Jimbo Mathus' pedigree is as colorful as the sounds ranging from his past—his Triangle days in the Squirrel Nut Zippers, as a Buddy Guy sideman, as an Elvis Costello producer or founding the South Memphis String band with Alvin Youngblood Hart and Luther Dickinson. Mathus has cultivated the persona of a lovable musical crank willing and able to pull off just about anything, with a special emphasis on gritty hill country folk blues and narcotized soul funk. His latest effort, Confederate Buddah, bends that bloozy Southern mien toward '70s country and classic rock. It's rollicking enough, even if a good bit less idiosyncratic than previous releases. —Chris Parker
