DON’T BE SCARED OF SACRED STEEL
Whether you’re into gospel music or not, The Word (a gospel-jazz supergroup comprised of John Medeski, members of North Mississippi Allstars, and pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph) will make a believer out of you. You can worship The Word at Brooklyn Bowl on October 6 ($25-$30).
MYNABIRDS, BUT MAJOR TALENT
There are other musicians in The Mynabirds, but when the band plays live it’s hard to take your eyes off Laura Burhenn. That luminous voice, singing earnest songs of love and loss, will move you to tears. The Mynabirds play The Sayers Club on October 7 ($11).
ON SALE NOW
Rockabilly fans should mark their calendars and prepare for a “Psychobilly Freakout.” Reverend Horton Heat (with special guests The BellRays and The Lords of Altamont) plays Vinyl on December 4 ($25-$45).
