CHARLIE ROBISON
8:30 p.m., Revolution, $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

This Austin singer/songwriter and judge for the first season of the now-defunct “Nashville Idol” (which gave Camden native Buddy Jewell the big win and songstress extraordinaire Miranda Lambert the boot, pun totally intended) is upfront about his newest LP, “Beautiful Day,” saying “let's get this out of the way up front … this is the divorce album.” But the split from his ex-wife, Emily Robison of the Dixie Chicks, has cranked up his signature, self-reflexive wit with lines like “she's hanging down in Venice with her Siamese cat/she's telling everybody she's a Democrat.” One of the most familiar, welcome voices in a landscape of pickups and coolers, Robison is always reliable to bring out a sizable crowd. This time around, he's accompanied by Jason Eady, a fellow Austinian with a flair for New Orleans-style stompers. JT.
