Touching on everything from Appalachian string music to jug band and Dixieland, Brooklyn’s Roosevelt Dime coined the term “steamboat soul” to describe the period sound it has culled from historic influences. From busking in the boroughs to raising cain at highfalutin’ festivals, the Dime’s live shows promise to be a suspender-snapping good time.

Friday 5/9. $10-15, 8pm. BON Cafe, 100 W. South St. 244-3786.
