Black Oak is in our town as we speak, folks. They traffic in a brand of rock and roll that boils down its essence to a burnt pot – delectably dumb and hyper-confident – some might even call them “cocky” – driven by an inner momentum to succeed through the virtue of sheer hard work. If you’ve ever hoisted a beer over your head in affirmation of rock and roll, you get it, and need to be at this show. I bet Jim Dandy still does the cock walk. Get there early for Lynnette Skynyrd, an all-femme tribute to the pride of Jacksonville, and amusing schtick from song parodist The Schnyde.
Black Oak Arkansas, Blues Brats, Aviators, Lynnette Skynyrd, Leather Elephants and The Schnyde at the Whisky A Go Go, Friday November 7. Tickets $20 at Ticketweb.
