Roosevelt Dime is a sonic steamboat ride from the neo-folk filled streets of Brooklyn to the rollicking Big Easy, with banjo, electric, and washtub basses, trumpet, and woodwind beats. The jovial assemblage comes to make merry—and will take no sitting down. Not as sticky sweet as the name The Honey Dewdrops suggests, Virginia-based musical couple Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish temper lovely harmonies (and the bill) with the painful longing and loss that comprises the human experience, using the language of traditional Americana and rootsy folk.

Friday 5/3  $10-12, 8pm. The Southern Café & Music Hall,103 S. First St. 977-5590.
