Whitey Morgan & the 78s/Texas Plant 

When: Thu., Sept. 18, 8:30 p.m. 2014
Price: $12
Midwest honky-tonk country done right. Flint, Mich.-based Whitey Morgan helms a tight band that throws listeners back to whiskey-slammin’ outlaw days — another era when country music had a beating, rambunctious heart. To date, Morgan and his band have cut two albums: Honky Tonks and Cheap Motels and a self-titled 2010 outing that showed a fine breadth in their songwriting. The meandering, dusty “Bad News” kicks off the latter album, leading to more upbeat affairs like “Meanest Jukebox in Town” and “Hard Scratch Pride.” If the studio stuff is any indication, you can expect some real country soul on the stage tonight.
