Asleep at the Wheel (9:00), Ben Rodgers

Introducing Ray Benson’s Western swing octet in 2014, Broken Spoke top hand James White recounted Asleep at the Wheel’s 1973 entrance into his honky-tonk. “They came beneath the big ol’ oak tree, walked across the dirt parking lot, and threw the door open on this rustic old building knowing damn well they wasn’t at Carnegie Hall.” Forty-four years later, bandmates have changed and condos have sprouted, but the Wheel at the Spoke remains. – Kevin Curtin
