Fri., Feb. 22, Dry County Drinkers
Luna's Café & Juice Bar, 8 p.m., $6
Being a nondrinker does not disqualify a person from enjoying the honky-tonk sounds of the Dry County Drinkers. But some might argue that imbibing can connect the listener to the music the way a laser show draws you closer to Pink Floyd. I've seen the Drinkers deliver their countrified show in a number of locales and have yet to see the group phone in a performance. Bandleader JonEmery Iverson crafts songs in a voice and personality of his own while drawing lyrically from old-timers such as Jerry Reed and Hank Thompson. This is a CD-release show for One Drink, One Smoke, One Song. 1414 16th Street, www.drycountydrinkers.com.
