Above, Sweany shills for Dean Guitars and talks playing finger-style and hollow-body guitars. With performance footage, too.

PATRICK SWEANY
10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

Mark this one down. If seeing someone in the small club who's destined for the big club tickles your fancy, if you've been craving a full-throated belter, if you like your guitar virtuosity to hypnotize, if a raw helping of blues/rock/soul sounds about right, go see Patrick Sweany. The Massillon, Ohio, native impressed hugely on his first visit to White Water Tavern in February with a raucous two-set performance. He's still touring behind his latest album, “Every Hour is a Dollar Gone,” which was produced by the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach. It's a gem of a record, a dirty, late-night blues-rocker that should be the soundtrack to dive bars everywhere (it is, of course, at White Water). Maybe I was drinking too much, but the first time Sweany came through, all I had to do was squint a little to imagine being in Junior Kimbrough's juke joint. This is blues-rock to sway to — for hours.
