Giving you the music a day early:
Band of Heathens. Let’s call these guys Americana-flavored rock ‘n’ roll. Top Hat Crown & The Clapmaster’s Son is the band’s latest studio album, released in March 2011. “Medicine Man” from that album is a little taste of psychedelia. “Should Have Known” is that kind of righteously messy blues rock The Rolling Stones played on Exile on Main St. A little honky-tonk country piano and R&B beat with AM gold harmony vocals. “Polaroid” is sparkling country mingled with power pop. Other tunes are galloping sunshine-y country rock. The Austin, Texas, band is bringing their sound to Dickey-Stephens Park for the Postgame Concert Series. The show immediately follow the game in Hookslide Corner. The concert is free. The game starts at 7:10 p.m., and admission is $4 to $12.
Randy Rogers Band at Rev Room. You should know what this means. A rowdy good time, that’s what. This red dirt-powered country act continues to flirt with breaking into country stardom, and they put on a rousing live show, a live show perfected via more than 200 shows a year. Burning the Day is the new album by the band. If you’re a fan of modern-day country rock, you should probably check the band out. Tickets for the 18-and-up night are $20 in advance and $25 day of.
Detroit has its rap rock with Kid Rock, but Rehab are purveyors of Southern rap rock, mixing guitar with a DJ and two vocalists, creating tunes such as the infectious, acoustic sing-along track “Bartender Song (Sittin’ at a Bar).” The scorching band that blends Southern rock and country with a rap attack visits Juanita’s. Rehab’s newest album is the February release Gullible’s Travels, including an ode to partying and Waffle Houses in “Waho By The Hoti.” The show starts at 10 p.m., and tickets are $13 in advance and $15 day of show.
Here are the Band of Heathens with their “You’re Gonna Miss Me”:
