CEDRIC BURNSIDE AND LIGHTNIN' MALCOLM
9:30 p.m., White Water Tavern. $10.

Here's a not-so-bold prediction: The Juke Joint Duo is about to blow up. For most of October, the North Mississippi bluesmen are hitting the road with Lucero and Amy LaVere, with stops in Nashville, D.C., Philly and New York. Some of those cities might be familiar to the duo, but not the size of the venues. Whatever happens, please, God, don't let them outgrow White Water Tavern. Their Hill Country blues — that raw and rhythmic sound of North Mississippi — always transforms the tavern into the best party ever, where everyone sweats and dances and the music seems to go on forever. It must feel familiar to the two, who grew up in and around the blues and juke joints. Both also lived, for a time, with Cedric's grandfather, the late great R.L. Burnside, and Cedric spent years on the road playing drums with him, too. But don't mistake this for a touch-of-greatness-through-association. Ced and Malcolm kill it all by themselves, and it's always a sight to behold.
