Kenny Roby, Jerry Leger, Debonzo Brothers

When: Sat., March 5, 10 p.m. 2011

Kenny Roby's quite comfortable with the plaintive peals of reverb guitar, having explored country and roots rock for more than a decade as a solo artist and in Six String Drag. It's not surprising, then, that by stepping outside this comfort zone, Roby discovered a hard-hitting new look. His last album, The Mercy Filter, bobs and weaves with sneaky power pop allure that suggests Elvis Costello with more of Graham Parker's soulful bite. His sonorous baritone sidles easily between aching ode and cooing paean, providing the versatility this new direction requires. This second sound really punches up the set list. —Chris Parker

Price: $5
