8BALL AND MJG WITH HILL COUNTRY REVUE
8 p.m., Revolution. $15 adv.

In an interview this summer, 8ball told me that live instrumentation would play a big part in the future of 8ball and MJG. Hill Country Revue wasn't exactly what I had in mind from a band that's built its reputation on “space age pimpin',” but damn if the prospect of the two acts together doesn't ring with potential. As North Mississippi Allstars fans know, HCR is what Cody Dickinson and Chris Chew keep busy with while Luther Dickinson's off cheatin' on 'em with the Black Crowes. Like the Allstars, blues-filtered Southern rock is their standard mode. But for one of the South's most respected rap duos, expect them to be pliable. For more than 15 years — starting in 1993 with “Comin' Out Hard” on Suave House, an album that set the standard for much of Southern rap that's followed — the pair's represented Memphis with gritty lyrics and percussive flows. They've got a new deal with T.I.'s Grand Hustle imprint that, this summer, 8ball promised would yield a new album this fall. Maybe we'll get an update. Epiphany and One Night Stand, Rockst*r and Dirtbag open.
