JIMBO MATHUS AND THE TRI-STATE COALITION
10 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

We've written quite a bit about Mississippi's Jimbo Mathus here at the Times and that's because, well, No. 1 we're just big fans of his music. His great recent "White Buffalo" album is still getting spins around these parts (Man, that opener, "In the Garden," is a classic).

But also, he comes up with nuggets like the following, which was his answer to a question in a recent interview with the Austin Chronicle's Derek Van Wagner. The fellow asked him: What makes good American music? Mathus said: "What a hard question that is. I'd say get some bark on you, do your homework and just love music and be passionate about the roots of your indigenous music and play and have fun with it. And that makes you a great American and a great patriot. I like music that creates a positive influence in the world. Positive change — that's what I'm trying to be."

It was a hard question, but that sure sounds like the correct answer. Also on this bill: blues singer/songwriter Davis Coen, a South Carolina native based out of Memphis. He performed at our Heritage Hog Roast back in May. Check out his tune "Change in the Weather," it's a good'n.
