KELLY JOE PHELPS -- Seemingly plucked out of a time warp, the 30-ish Seattle-based Phelps plays deep Delta and Appalachian music, and sings in a world-weary slur making him sound like the genuine article. His deliberate, melancholic tunes and sorrowful lap-steel obscure a dry, witty and offbeat sense of humor, which, along with the comfy venue, makes this a rich and slightly surreal experience. Red Light Cafe (Horowitz)
