The Best Concerts In Houston This Weekend: Travis Tritt, Adam Bricks, John Digweed, etc.

Good Job Underground Fitzgerald's, April 13

Spring's Good Job Underground has been one of the most underrated rock duos of the past few years around these parts. If you have an El Ten Eleven itch that needs scratching, or miss prime Helmet, here's your band. Straight-ahead, low-fat metal riffs without the hassle of a front man, GJU only seems to be missing an audience outside of the Houston alt-rock sphere.

Come on all you tattooed Montrose beardos, they're playing your tune; "Part of This Complete Breakfast" indeed. With Hounds of Jezebel, Dead Man's Ransom, The Vehement Burn and North Til Dawn. CRAIG HLAVATY

Travis Tritt Nutty Jerry's (Winnie), April 13

Georgia native Travis Tritt smashed into '90s twang with 1991's It's All About To Change, which featured the glorious country kiss-off "Here's a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)" and "The Whiskey Ain't Workin." Across worthy follow-ups T-R-O-U-B-L-E and Ten Feet Tall and Bulletproof, Tritt managed to sate the Garth-addicted masses while injecting plenty of Skynyrd-style sentiment, and hardly forgetting a few bedroom anthems for the ladies.

These days he's a regular on the classic-country circuit who can swing blue-eyed soul when he wants, and stays busy year-round from coast to coast. Yes, Tritt even plays Atlantic City, because why should he deprive those dastardly Yankees the pleasure of weeping during "Anymore"? With Shooter Jennings & the Triple Crown. CRAIG HLAVATY

Adam Bricks Continental Club, April 13

In the same class of emerging local folksingers as Shellee Coley, Frank Freeman and the two people who join him Saturday - Ancient Cat Society's Sergio Trevino and Benjamin Wesley - Adam Bricks looks like another heir to Houston's tradition of talented storytellers packing acoustic guitars.

City Songs, the Bellaire High School grad's brand-new full-length album, is a ramshackle yet tuneful suite of songs dedicated to Houston itself, and flashes bits of rootsy charm and pop smarts. With Ancient Cat Society and Benjamin Wesley. CHRIS GRAY
