Avoiding categorization has become a music biz cliché but The Revivalists’ refusal to commit to a single genre has played in the group’s favor. The New Orleans-based rock band has been welcomed by funk, soul and jam band communities with open arms, and the inability to pigeonhole its sound has diversified its fan base while allowing the freedom to make distinctly unique music. Though the septet has released four albums since 2007, it’s the live shows that have garnered the most praise.

Saturday 11/22. $15-18, 7pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
