The Revivalists, Martha Ann Motel

When: Sat., Jan. 12, 10 p.m. 2013

There's a problem with New Orleans' otherwise unobjectionable Revivalists: Their name makes no sense. The savvy ensemble pairs safely sensual funk and soul with rock 'n' roll melodies that tend to meander—not to the point that you could call the group a jam band, but in a way that would certainly ingratiate them to that scene. It's a tried-and-true formula, one that has been pervasive since the early '70s, rendering The Revivalists' name as false and their sound a touch too commonplace to register many thrills. Martha Ann Motel opens with outsized alt-country swagger that, similarly, is often a little too formulaic. —Jordan Lawrence

Price: $8-10
