By now, most readers of this section of the Times will be familiar with Chuck Ragan, formerly of much-loved post-hardcore quartet Hot Water Music and roots punkers Rumbleseat. He was in town in November on the solo, but this here package tour is something he started and has been doing annually since 2008.

It's an all-acoustic lineup that has included such fellow travelers as Tim Barry of Avail, Ben Nichols of Lucero, Kevin Seconds of 7 Seconds and Tom Gabel of Against Me! But it's more than just the Old Punks Unplugged Show. The tour is a way for singer/songwriters to give audiences an intimate concert that celebrates the folk traditions of collaboration and spontaneity in a generally song-focused, non-rock-star atmosphere. Also, the load-in has got to be a hell of a lot easier than having four bands' worth of gear to schlep around.

This time, The Revival Tour includes Ragan, Tom Gabel, Memphis fave Cory Branan, grizzled folk-shouter Nathaniel Rateliff, Dan Adriano of Chicago punkers Alkaline Trio and a series of special guests at each tour stop, this one featuring local folk-rock standout Adam Faucett.

After the jump, check out a Revival Tour medley of "Heart of Gold" and "Rockin' in the Free World."
