TAV FALCO AND THE UNAPPROACHABLE PANTHER BURNS
9 p.m. Rogue Pizza Co. $10 adv., $12 door.

What a rare and delectable treat for fans of idiosyncratic American music: an Arkansas concert from the great Tav Falco, native of Gurdon, prophet of psychobilly, leader of Panther Burns, author, actor, tango dancer, artist, filmmaker, true original.

Falco moved to Memphis in the '70s and began documenting the city's more marginal musicians and artists, running around and collaborating with Alex Chilton, William Eggleston, Jim Dickinson and other Bluff City legends.

Falco's latest album, last year's "Conjurations: Seance for Deranged Lovers," is his first disc of original material in more than a decade. It's a dozen tracks of Falco's signature reverb-drenched stew of foreboding blues, primitive rockabilly stomp, dark garage-psych and the odd chanson or tango number. Falco has lived in Europe for some time now, so a home-state show is a once-in-a-blue-moon kinda thing, so you know, probably don't skip this one.

Openers are Glory Bones and Forever Blowing Bubbles.

    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.
