GUY CLARK
8 p.m. Revolution. $25-$40.

It's been a jam-packed few weeks for fans of old-school, "songwriter's songwriter" type country performers. Earlier in the month, Kris Kristofferson, Rosanne Cash, Rodney Crowell and several others played in Jonesboro at the Johnny Cash Music Festival. Last week Billy Joe Shaver brought the house down with a two-hour show at Revolution. Robert Earl Keen plays Revolution in a couple weeks and David Allan Coe is at The Electric Cowboy Sept. 1.

Guy Clark is on par with any of these artists, and should need no introduction. He's written tunes that have been recorded by numerous country giants, including Johnny Cash ("Texas 1947," "Let Him Roll"), Jerry Jeff Walker ("L.A. Freeway" and "Desperadoes Waiting For a Train"), Ricky Skaggs ("Heartbroke"), Vince Gill ("Oklahoma Borderline") and plenty more. Clark's own albums - especially his stone-cold classic debut "Old No. 1" - are sturdy from top to bottom, filled with songs that feel perfectly broken in.

If you dig country, do not miss this opportunity to see one of an ever-shrinking pool of living legends.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
