BILLY JOE SHAVER
8 p.m. White Water Tavern. $25 adv., $30 day of.


Not really sure what else I can add to this one, other than to restate what's already resoundingly clear: Billy Joe Shaver is without question one of the finest and most highly regarded songwriters in all of country music. He's also one of the genre's liveliest performers and a storyteller who can make you laugh and cry, sometimes within the space of a single between-song tale.

If you only go to one show all year (a practice that I am in no way advocating), make it this one. Bonnie Montgomery opens.

    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.
