To the Top (Plowboy)

Riff in their hearts and a catchy chorus on their lips, East Nashville's Blackfoot Gypsies unabashedly kick out the jams. A certain reverence for American roots gives them weight beyond garage rock trend-hopping. N'awlins second line in "Back to New Orleans," blues on, naturally, "I've Got the Blues," and some C&W in "Lying Through Your Teeth" fuse nicely. Ultimately, though, an exuberant, energy-spewing take on the tight-but-loose Stones/Faces axis drives this Gypsy caravan To the Top, raw and unrestrained with style and Southern twang. (11:30am, BMI stage)
