Son Volt, Colonel Ford

When: Sat., April 13, 8 p.m. 2013

As you might surmise by its name, Honky Tonk—the latest album from Jay Farrar's Son Volt—bends its ears and hips closer to country, dropping a bit of the rock punch from the band's earlier records. Problem is, Honky Tonk only goes halfway, bending enough toward rock to make the would-be country beauties seem restless and worried. Honky Tonk has its winning moments, but it finds Farrar at an impasse of indecision that suggests the great rock jubilation of old Son Volt shows might not land quite so well this time around. —Grayson Currin
