If, when you think of American roots music, you don't immediately think of Los Angeles, that city's The Dustbowl Revival might just change your mind. Of the band's sound, press says, "This rambling, rolling spirit is the same spark that lit a fire under the past two centuries of Westward migration in America. It comes from a need for wide-open vistas, rollicking street parties, laidback lifestyles, and communities that you build yourself." New album, Carry Me Back Home, infuses string band offerings with bombastic energy and spirituals with barroom revelry. The Dustbowl Revival takes the stage at Jack of the Wood on Saturday, Aug. 3. 9 p.m., $7. http://www.jackofthewood.com.
