North Mississippi Allstars, Lightnin Malcolm

When: Thu., March 1 2012

NORTH MISSISSIPPI ALLSTARS Last year, Cody and Luther Dickinson turned in the best album of North Mississippi Allstars’ career, following the death of the brothers’ legendary father, Jim Dickinson — a staple of Southern music whose magic fingers touched everything from the Stones’ classic Muscle Shoals recordings to American punk greats the Replacements. The Dickinson brothers’ thick slabs of meaty blues-rock were more reflective on the Allstars’ Keys to the Kingdom, recalling the spirit of the band’s 2000 debut, Shake Hands with Shorty, but with the kind of wiser and more mature sensibility you get when you live through the death of a family hero. We suspect they’ll do their daddy right on this night. (Mark Kemp)
