Saturday To-Do: North Mississippi Allstars

9 p.m. Revolution. $20.

The Brothers Dickinson's latest North Mississippi Allstars disc is dedicated to their father, the late, legendary Jim Dickinson. At the time of his death in August 2009, Luther was playing with The Black Crowes and Cody with The Hill Country Revue.

They reconvened with bassist Chris Chew for "Keys to the Kingdom." It's a somewhat rawer affair than some of their other offerings, which are fine records, for sure, but "Keys" sounds truly inspired and includes a bunch of legendary guests, including Spooner Oldham, Mavis Staples, Ry Cooder and several others.

I'm guessing there'll be a goodly number of you at this show who'll still be nursing hangovers from Friday's Patrick Sweany concert. But why not live for the moment and just fight fire with shots and rock 'n' roll?

The opening band at this 18-and-older show is Powder Mill.

Check out "Hear the Hills" by the North Mississippi Allstars after the jump.
