folk and blues rock, 9 p.m.
For nearly a decade, Shonna Tucker served as the bassist for the much-loved Nü Southern rock band, the Drive-By Truckers, but in 2011 she left Patterson Hood and the boys behind. These days, Tucker is making time with her new band, Eye Candy. During most of Tucker’s Drive-By tenure, she was married to then-Truckers guitarist Jason Isbell, but the pair split and Isbell left the band. In his absence, Tucker contributed several songs of her own to the Truckers, most notably the terrific country-soul kiss-off, “(It’s Gonna Be) I Told You So” off 2010’s The Big To-Do. She has a deep, grainy voice with a corn-fed charm, but it’s the expressiveness of her singing that wins the day. There’s still no word on when a new album can be expected, but she recently released the pretty, slow-burn tune “Your Jealousy.” Tucker’s opening for Columbia roots-rocker Josh Roberts, who’s supporting his third album, Mighty Old Distance and Murky Old Time. —Chris Parker SATURDAY
