JOE BUCK10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.
Every time the haunting visage of Joe Buck
enters my fragile mind, I remember seeking fatherly advice on how to handle taunting playground commands such as “go to hell.” He said, “Son, tell 'em if you don't see 'em there, you'll know there's a worse place.” Perhaps the one-man hellbilly music machine Joe Buck would even agree with Dad on this one. A solid presence with Hank III's projects and the bassist/drummer/guitarist on Th' Legendary Shack Shaker's 2003 debut, “Cockadoodledon't,” Buck, performing one-man band-style as Joe Buck Yourself, headlines what could easily become a demon-conjuring three-act show. He'll be thoroughly supported by old-school garage miscreants Bloodless Cooties
, as well as Josh's the Devil's latest incarnation, Devil's Right Hand Band
, featuring guitarist Mark Wyers (Weisenheimers), and yours truly on drums. So if the cosmos doesn't maintain steady alignment, strange rumblings may likely open the portal south of heaven and summon the White Water Tavern, and all its occupants, directly onto the elevator to hell. See you there?
