John Howie Jr & the Rosewood Bluff, Joe Fletcher & the Wrong Reasons, Last at Appomattox

When: Sun., April 22, 8:30 p.m. 2012

Coming out of the same Providence, R.I., scene that produced Deer Tick, Joe Fletcher possesses a similarly rollicking roots spirit paired to a decidedly more rustic take on country-blues. Fletcher delivers dark narratives populated by foreboding moons, wrong turns and looming apocalypse, as on the hellish rockabilly rave "The River is Hot" from 2010's White Lighter. Fletcher's lyrics bear the imprint of folk troubadours with racing stories and character studies. John Howie Jr. is known for his plaintive George Jones-style baritone and tears-in-your-beer balladry; with the Rosewood Bluff, however, he unleashes hooky honky-tonking country-rock. —Chris Parker
