Mary Gauthier & Sam Baker

Wed., Sept. 17, 8 p.m.

Last year Nashville outsider Mary Gauthier released Live at Blue Rock (In the Black), a career survey recorded before a small audience in Wimberley, Texas, just outside Austin. That locale makes good sense for her, because she’s much closer to Texas troubadours such as Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark than she is to most Music City types; she didn’t get serious about music till she was 35, several years after finally kicking alcohol and drugs, but since then she’s become a hardscrabble storyteller with a clenched delivery and the raspy voice of someone who’s survived a rough life. —Peter Margasak, 2013

Revelers

Thu., Sept. 18, 8 p.m.

A new combo from Lafayette, Louisiana, comprising members of the Red Stick Ramblers and the Pine Leaf Boys, the Revelers open their recent self-titled debut with the rollicking Cajun-style original "Des Fois," on which they sound like they're carrying on the Beausoleil sound, albeit in a stripped-down form. But take in the whole album, and they make it clear that they're after something else: their mixture of honky-tonk, R&B, zydeco, and rock 'n' roll suggests Louisiana swamp pop, a peculiar fusion of bayou styles that peaked in the 60s with the likes of Jewel & the Rubies' "Kidnapper" and Sam McClain's "Jukebox Songs" (both of which the Revelers cover). —Peter Margasak, 2013
