John Howie Jr & the Rosewood Bluff, Magnolia Collective, Lake & Hennepin

When: Fri., Jan. 27, 10 p.m. 2012

John Howie's tales of heartbreak (and the ensuing getting on the road and moving on) possess enough roadhouse rollick for those having a Friday night on the town to get up and dance. But when Howie sings "you don't want me" on "Last Great Guitar Slinger," the plaintive cracks in his voice speak directly to the down-and-out lifer, nursing a beer at the end of the bar. Magnolia Collective—a septet featuring members of Gambling the Muse, The Whiskey Smugglers, Red Collar and The Pneurotics—offers a jangle-oriented counterpoint to Howie's truckstop country. Dirty Little Heaters powerhouse vocalist Reese McHenry, who only recently returned to live music, plays with her relatively new band Lake & Hennepin. —Corbie Hill
