HILL COUNTRY REVUE
9 p.m., Revolution. $10.

Last seen strumming a musical, um, pleasure device in the too-hot-for-TV episode of MTV's “$5 Cover,” Cody Dickinson rolls into town with another batch of Allstars, some of whom you might recognize. There's Chris Chew, the bassist for North Mississippi Allstars, who along with the brothers Dickinson, has put out three Grammy-nominated albums. There's former blues prodigy Kirk Smithhart, who received the Albert King award for Best Guitarist by the Blues Foundation when he was 19; Daniel Robert Coburn, whose former band Dixie Hustler's debut was produced, in part, by Kid Rock, and Edward Cleveland, who's toured with Shalamar. Active since Luther Dickinson took up with the Black Crowes and the NMAS went on hiatus, the revue specializes in the same kind of jam-y blues-rock that's earned the Allstars legions of fans, but with a little extra swampy edge. This show finds the band touring behind “Make a Move,” its just released debut on Razor & Tie.
