Friday To-Do: Cross Canadian Ragweed

CROSS CANADIAN RAGWEED
9 p.m., Revolution. $18 adv./$20 d.o.s.

Take rhythm guitarist Grady Cross, lead vocalist/guitarist Cody Canada, drummer Randy Ragsdale and original bassist Mark Wiedemann and you've got the formula behind the name Cross Canadian Ragweed. For the last 14 years, the alt-country foursome has built up its sizable fanbase the old-fashioned way — it barnstormed across the country, regularly playing 200 gigs a year. This tour finds CCR (convenient, huh?) supporting “Mission California,” the Oklahoma act's latest album on Universal South. The record debuted at number six on the Billboard country charts and spawned “I Believe You” and “Cry Lonely.” Micky and the Motorcars, another hero of the Red Dirt scene, accompany CCR to Revolution. You better get your tickets early. Cross Canadian Ragweed always sells out Revolution.
