Thursday To-Do: Dirt Daubers



9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $7.

Just a few weeks after he made his directorial debut at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival, Legendary Shackshakers front man J.D. Wilkes returns to Central Arkansas with a new band he's calling Dirt Daubers. The bluegrass-influenced side project, which also features Wilkes' wife, Jessica, and “Slow” Layne Hendrickson, put out its self-titled debut in June. The album's full of rollicking, hillbilly-hokum — righteous kazoo solos, articulate banjo picking and rowdy vocals. The Western Kentucky hooligans mix in a few standards, too. With self-cited influences including Dock Boggs, Cab Calloway and the Louvin Brothers, Dirt Daubers seem sure to get the crowd a-stompin'.
