DAVID OLNEY & SERGIO WEBB
8:30 p.m. White Water Tavern. $7.

We've been digging on David Olney and Sergio Webb for a while now, and if your musical tastes run toward the dark end of the folk/country/blues genres and you haven't checked them out yet, what are you waiting for? The late, great Townes Van Zandt gets trotted out a lot when it comes to grizzled singer/songwriters, but Olney is one of the few who you could honestly say could be heir to the throne of good ol' TVZ.

The latest Olney album, "Robbery & Murder," is the third in a trilogy, available individually or as a set called "Body of Evidence." The songs include new numbers and new versions of classic Olney cuts like "Jerusalem Tomorrow," which was on his 1989 album, "Deeper Well." That track was the standout on Emmylou Harris' 1993 record "Cowgirl's Prayer," which is really saying something considering the fact that the album also boasted compositions from such heavies as Leonard Cohen, Lucinda Williams and Tony Joe White.

Olney and Webb have played Maxine's several times, but this will be their first visit to the White Water Tavern. Also on the bill is Mark Currey, of roots-rock faves Monkhouse.
