DAVID ALLAN COE
10 p.m., Hog's Breath Grill. $20 adv., $25 d.o.s.

In the world of outlaw country, Johnny Cash is revered as the village elder; Willie Nelson, the wide-eyed neighborhood hippie; Kris Kristofferson, the cool uncle; and David Allan Coe? He's the grizzled, raw-mouthed sociopath in the woods with a thousand ways to tell you to eat shit and die. All tattoos and nasty attitude with a death-row pedigree to match, Coe is heading into his 71st year with just as many releases under his name. He has a reputation as a hell-raising, songwriting machine that's made him a bona fide country music icon and living legend for 'necks. The outlaw behind "You Never Even Called Me by My Name" (and a few notorious songs liable to get you stabbed if you dare say them out loud) plays the new Hog's Breath Grill off I-30 on the southern tip of Little Rock — on the opening day of modern gun deer season, no less.
