Aladdin Theater
3017 SE Milwaukie Ave.
 
[HAGGARD AMERICANA] Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy might have stolen the remaining members of the late Uncle Tupelo upon Jay Farrar’s exit, but he sure as hell didn’t steal the man’s thunder when it comes to writing killer, whiskey-doused folk. Son Volt, for which Farrar serves as frontman and anchor, has proven the band’s earnest conviction to its traditional roots for nearly 20 years, lolling in the twangy nuances of Hank Williams and late-’60s Dylan, with Farrar’s Midwestern drawl and rustic guitar on high. The band’s first album in four years, Honky Tonk, is a doggone-good homage to the Bakersfield sound, piled high with a generous helping of pedal steel and twin fiddles that would almost certainly make George Jones proud.
