MARCIA BALL
9 p.m., Revolution, $15.

Blending a true elixir of swampy Louisiana groove, boogie-woogie and Texas roadhouse rock, Marcia Ball continues to kick up dust. The multiple Grammy-nominated singer, pianist and recipient of countless awards is a regular at huge music festivals and on national tours, such as this one, which brings her to town supporting her latest release “Peace, Love and BBQ,” three of her self-proclaimed “favorite things.” Backed by a wailing sax player, guitarist, bassist and drummer, Ball, seated in a position that flashes some calf, places her right leg over her left, and swings it like a pendulum or metronome, which certainly would appear unwise for a male to attempt, but it's hard not to observe — you can't help feeling like a kitten mesmerized by a string. With no opening act booked thus far, Ball's all-ages show could be one to bring the young-uns to.
