Robert Earl Keen, Randy Rogers Band, Reckless Kelly

When: Sun., Nov. 7, 8 p.m. 2010

Born in Houston, Robert Earl Keen graces his storytelling with plenty of acoustic guitar and understated accents, though he's still capable of cranking out a rowdy toe-tapper or two. This versatile duality serves the songwriter well. With an obvious twang, the Texan's ragged pipes tell heroic outlaw tales over Red Dirt-flavored country rock, but his straining voice gets relief with full-on crowd participation when recounting poignant moments on soft-edged folk ballads. Fellow Texan acts the Randy Rogers Band and Reckless Kelly—the former, purveyors of glossy, new Nashvillian country, the latter, pushers of honky-tonkin' alt-country—join Keen. —Spencer Griffith

Price: $24-27
