Juke Joint Duo 

CEDRIC BURNSIDE AND LIGHTNIN' MALCOLM

9:30 p.m., White Water Tavern. $10.

 

So far, so good. In October, Lucero took the Juke Joint Duo on the road, stopping in big venues in Nashville, Philly, New York and elsewhere. And at least so far, those shows haven't propelled the North Mississippi bluesmen into their deserved place in the stratosphere. And maybe it'll never happen. Maybe Ced and Malcolm will grow gray before they quit coming to White Water every couple of months. But if you've caught them live, you can't blame me for being worried. Their Hill Country blues — the raw rhythmic sound of North Mississippi — always turns the tavern into a dance party without compare. They've got an almost hallucinatory power. Last time I saw them, my feet weren't moving, the floor was. Best keep on as if this is your last chance to ever see 'em again.
