CL's picks for the week's best shows

Page 3 of 3

THURS/23

DALE WATSON, CIGAR STORE INDIANS This sympathetic bill combines the opener's rootsy rockabilly and Stonesy rocking with Watson's classic country, honky-tonk and what he calls "Ameripolitan." Both stubbornly follow dusty musical paths that keep them off the radio and under the radar, but have managed to find welcoming audiences on their own terms. Watson's husky baritone falls between the outlaw rumblings of Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash, two role models who likewise never kowtowed to record-biz pressure while blazing their own idiosyncratic trails. $15. 8 p.m. Smith's Olde Bar. 404-875-1522. www.smithsoldebar.com. -- HH
