Blue Canoe, two 

BLUE MOUNTAIN

9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

 

Where, oh where, have all the first-generation roots rockers gone? Uncle Tupelo? Long gone. Wilco? Surely you haven't been asleep that long. Jayhawks? Splitsville. Even Jay Farrar, long the torchbearer for dusty-road anthems, is putting horns and beeps and glitches in new Son Volt material. For those still lamenting the end of No Depression — the magazine and the genre — a flicker of light: Blue Mountain is back together. After six years apart, the seminal Oxford, Miss., act launched a tour last year (it included a Little Rock date) to see if reuniting would take. There were reasons to think it might be contentious. Lead singer Cary Hudson and bassist Laurie Stirratt essentially got married on the road and then divorced on the road, and drummer Matt Brennan had retired from music. But so far, it's been smooth sailing. So smooth, in fact, that Blue Mountain has recorded a new album, to be released in July. Local roots outfit the Good Time Ramblers, which includes most of the members of the Munks, opens the show.
