It’s been 30 years since the release of Copperhead Road, an album that revived the gritty rebelliousness founded in the early days of country music. Steve Earle & The Dukes pay homage to his Austin, Texas, roots with a special anniversary set that, in addition to celebrating the album, offers a retrospective of Earle’s career, including his recent album, So You Wannabe an Outlaw?, a tribute Waylon Jennings. “There’s nothing ‘retro’ about this record,” Earle says, “I’m just acknowledging where I’m coming from.”

Thursday 11/29. $29-55, 8 pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
