South Dakota blues rockers Indigenous started out as a family band, with frontman Mato Nanji being backed up by his brother Pte, sister Wandbi and cousin Horse.

But after several albums of crunchy, electrified blues in the vein of the late, great SRV, culminating with the band's Vanguard debut, 2006's "Chasing the Sun," the lineup changed. Pte, Wandbi and Horse departed, and Mato Nanji lined up a new crew and took things in a slightly rootsier direction, with 2008's Broken Lands, which was described by Allmusic's Richie Unterberger as owing more to "Bruce Springsteen than it does to Muddy Waters." 2010's "The Acoustic Sessions" offered 11 tracks of, as advertised, acoustic guitar-centric renditions of several Indigenous tunes, as well as a cover of Roy Orbison's "You Got It."

The opener at the 18-and-older show is Arkansas blues rock wunderkind Stephen Neeper.

    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.
