ARTS Pick: Eli Cook

Local bluesman Eli Cook takes everything he learned from performing at church revivals and channels it into his long-awaited new album, High-Dollar Gospel. The singer-songwriter’s unique merging of his own Appalachian folk history with ferocious rock riffs has earned him accolades since he came on the scene at age 18. The musical growth apparent on his latest release confirms Cook as no longer one to watch, but one to follow.

Saturday, September 2. $10-12, 9pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.
