Monday 9/3

Greasin’ the groove

In an age of dub step and rap versions of ’80s new wave, Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears stand apart with gritty, funky, dirty-picking, soul-howling blues. But don’t mistake Joe’s crew for a novelty act. This band is puttin’ hands on hips, lettin’ backbones slip, and establishing themselves as protectors of the flame, traversing the path made by Howlin’ Wolf, Joe Tex, and James Brown, and providing the world with just a little more soul. $14-16, 8pm. Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
