Chuck Mead & His Grassy Knoll Boys/Rachel & the Beatnik Playboys 

When: Fri., April 4, 8:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $13 ADV, $15 DOS
Back in the ‘90s, BR549 was one of the leading alt-country acts. On numerous occasions, the band packed the Beachland Ballroom and put on some fantastic shows. BR549 is no longer together but frontman Chuck Mead has just issued Free State Serenade, an album that retains the band’s signature sound. Album opener “Knee Deep is the Wakarusa River” features Mead’s distinctive vocals and some twangy slide guitar riffs. With its hiccupping backing vocals, “On a Slow Train Through Arkansas” is good fun and the same goes for the Blasters-like “Evil Wind.” (Niesel)
