Shook Twins

The Redstone Room

Wednesday, October 1, 7:30 p.m.

 

Pop culture is filled with sets of identical twins whose warmth and charisma have brought us joy: Susan and Sharon in The Parent Trap; Patty and Cathy in The Patty Duke Show; Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potters; the sadistic gynecologists in Dead Ringers; those creepy little girls in The Shining ... .

Okay, this intro kind of got away from me.

Tommy Emmanuel

Adler Theatre

Wednesday, September 10, 7:30 p.m.

 

Guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel performs at the Adler Theatre on September 10, and as fans of the two-time Grammy nominee can attest, he’s famed for perfecting a complex playing technique called “fingerstyle.” That’s what I used to call my talent for eating jarred peanut butter without a spoon, but I’m betting Emmanuel’s fingerstyle never got him kicked out of the family kitchen.

Lydia Loveless

Rock Island Brewing Company

Saturday, August 23, 9 p.m.

 

Alternative-country musician Lydia Loveless is August 23’s headliner at the Rock Island Brewing Company, and as a longtime resident of the city, I’m proud to say that her list of notable performances begins and ends in Rock Island.

Don’t believe me? Check out the artist’s Wikipedia page: Both the first and last inclusions in the “Notable Performances” section are recording sessions that took place at Rock Island’s Daytrotter studio. Now she’s playing RIBCO, where she also performed in June of 2012. Loveless? Hell, we sure seem to love her!

The Devil Makes Three

The Redstone Room

Wednesday, August 13, 8 p.m.

 

The Devil Makes Three performs as Davenport’s Redstone Room on August 13, and if you’re unfamiliar with the band, AllMusic.com writes, “The trio’s sound combines bluegrass, primitive country music, folk, rockabilly, Piedmont blues, and ragtime, played with a blazing post-punk attack.” The Web site also states that the group’s musicians “inhabit a hardscrabble working-class world full of problem drinkers, tellers of tall tales, pirates, and troublemakers.” That’s odd. I haven’t seen them around the Reader offices ... .
