    Tonight: Joe Ely and Joel Guzman at Dosey Doe in The Woodlands

    Among many other things (Flatlanders, "The Road Goes on Forever," etc.) Ely was big pals with the Clash - they toured both the U.S. and Europe together, and Ely even sings backup vocals on Combat Rock hit "Should I Stay or Should I Go." That's him si...

    Tonight: Lowell Thompson at Rudyard's

    Burlington, Vermont, singer-slinger Lowell Thompson has that angst-ridden delivery that screams "this is alt-country." A pointed No Depression/Jeff Tweedy-ness abounds on Thompson's 2004 EP Turn, which is full of steel guitar and generic but pleasant...

    Cross Canadian Ragweed

    If this Oklahoma foursome isn't careful, it could become country music's Next Big Thing. These latter-day Creedence-style red-dirt rockers turn out tunes loaded with style and lyrical smarts, a musical tightrope act most of CCR's peers avoid. Lurkin...
