With a crusty voice and stripped-down instrumentation seemingly out of the Civil War – and a beard to match – WILLIAM ELLIOTT WHITMORE sings of death, redemption, salvation and despair. In other words, perfect music for the current economic climate. Samantha Crain opens. $8-$10. 8 p.m. Drunken Unicorn, 736 Ponce de Leon Ave. www.thedrunkenunicorn.net.
