North Mississippi Allstars Play The Bowery Ballroom Tomorrow Night

May 10th, 2017

In baseball, you’ve got your all-stars and you’ve got your veteran journeymen. In Southern rock, you’ve got North Mississippi Allstars (above, performing “Rollin’ and Tumblin’” for Jam in the Van), who after two decades of nearly constant round-the-world-several-times-over touring, playing and recording—together and apart—collaborating with other musicians or just straight-up, are still in the upper echelon of the genre. The brothers Dickinson, Luther and Cody, show no signs of losing their edge, back with their potent, swampy blues on their upcoming album Prayer for Peace, out next month. They return to The Bowery Ballroom Thursday night, and you should expect the wily moves of a crafty veteran and the long-ball power of the game’s best. —A. Stein | @Neddyo
