Zito, Zoo Bar, Sunday Roadhouse

Mike Zito & The Wheel are up at The 21st Saloon Thursday, Feb. 27, 6-9 p.m. Zito’s star keeps rising. His other gig is playing as part of Royal Southern Brotherhood with Devon Allman and Cyril Neville. Zito’s latest solo disc, Gone to Texas (Ruf Records), includes special guests Sonny Landreth, Delbert McClinton and Susan Cowsill. NoDepression.com writes “Zito bares his soul throughout this testimonial. It's not the work of a man squatting in a corner wallowing in self pity, but a man sure in his resurrection who wants to celebrate and share his blessings and transgressions with a wall rattling, roadhouse throwdown.” See mikezito.com.

Zoo Bar Blues
Friday night Lincoln’s Zoo Bar features the Honeyboy Turner Band 5-7 p.m.  Late night it’s Josh Hoyer & The Shadowboxers sharing the bill with Lucas Kellison & The Undisco Kids. This show is part of the Zoo’s new “dancehall series” with fewer tables and chairs and a bigger dance floor.
Next week the Zoo features Joe Louis Walker & The Boss Talkers Wednesday, March 5, 6-9 p.m. Billy Bacon starts a three night run on Thursday, March 6, 6 p.m. See zoobar.com for dates and times. The heavy blues of The Soul of John Black is up on Thursday, March 6, 9:30 p.m.

Sunday Roadhouse
The Sunday Roadhouse concert series presents Marshall Crenshaw on a double bill with The Bottle Rockets Sunday, March 2, 5 p.m. AllMusic.com says of Crenshaw, “He writes songs that are melodic, hooky and emotionally true, and he sings and plays them with an honesty and force that still finds room for humor without venom." See sundayroadhouse.com.

Reverend Peyton Tears it Up
The hard-charging early 20th Century blues of Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is at Waiting Room Wednesday, March 5, 9 p.m. Peyton is a tremendous, explosive slide player who is steeped in the traditional old-school blues of artists like Charley Patton and Robert Johnson. Their 2010 appearance on Van’s Warped Tour on the Alternative Press stage cemented them with a larger, younger fan base that doesn’t usually connect with  the blues. Check them out at bigdamnband.com.

Hot Notes
Tommy Castro’s new disc The Devi You Know (Alligator) shows Castro changing up his tone and style a bit. It’s great stuff, check it out at tommycastro.com.
Friday, Feb. 28, 8-11 p.m. McKenna’s presents Nashville’s Tom Buller with his Americana-roots music. Joe Louis Walker & The Boss Talkers are also at The 21st Saloon Thursday, March 6, 6-9 p.m.
