When I was a music critic in Florida, there were two genres I had to write about frequently that wore on my patience: black metal and contemporary electric blues. While on the surface, North Mississippi Allstars belong in the latter group—and not only because deep-voiced frontman Luther Dickinson is a consummate guitarist prone to wailing solos—their music has more Southern rock dimensions, Delta grit, and ass-shakable grooves than your normal noodling fare. Plus Luther and his bro Cody (who plays a wicked electric washboard in addition to drums and keys) are the sons of late great Memphis record producer Jim Dickinson, so they know their shit. Also, they put on a fucking sweaty, righteous show. Expect some barn-burning on this night.
