Nashville-by-way-of-Brooklyn roots collective Old Crow Medicine Show was famously discovered in Boone by Doc Watson, who invited them to play Merlefest. Also famously, the group expanded a song fragment from Bob Dylan’s Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid outtakes into the busker standard/Hootie chart-climber “Wagon Wheel.” Sticking to that proven method, “Sweet Amarillo” from Old Crow’s new album Remedy was built around another Dylan line — though the punchy, driving 13-track record has plenty of supercaffeinated roots-rockers for future buskers to pull from. Old Crow Medicine Show returns to Pisgah Brewing Co. on Monday, May 25, at 7:30 p.m. The Devil Makes Three also performs. $30 advance/$35 day of show/$60 Hopster VIP. pisgahbrewing.com.
