10 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

If you've ever had the privilege of seeing the Juke Joint Duo, you're probably aware that in addition to being a stone-badass drummer, Cedric Burnside is also a helluva guitar player and singer. When I saw the band a couple years back at White Water, Burnside stepped out from behind the kit and played a few songs on a resonator or dobro or something. Whatever it was, his songs were, perhaps unsurprisingly, amazing hill country blues, cut from the same entrancing, deep blue cloth as those of his grandfather, the late, great R.L. Burnside.

Burnside is in town with his newest band, The Cedric Burnside Project, which last year released its first album, "The Way I Am." Expect this show to be packed; get there early.

    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.
