John Paul Keith

9 p.m. Friday, August 17. Duck Room at Blueberry Hill, 6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City.

John Paul Keith
John Paul Keith's new record was produced by Bruce Watson at Fat Possum.

p>John Paul Keith is that rare singer, songwriter and guitarist who, by virtue of deep-in-the-genes musicality, manages to wear all three roles lightly, persuasively and more than a little wildly. A founding member of the long-gone alt-country heroes the Viceroys, Keith now fronts the One Four Fives, a band that ignites his passion for bedrock rock & roll — from the Everlys to Buddy Holly to Chuck Berry — and his killing wit. "I've never been lucky, and I've never been hip," he sings on 2009's Spills & Thrills. "Got a whole lotta headaches when I opened my lip." Keith knows you can't play rock & roll without taking a few hard shots, but he always comes back swinging.

RIYL: The Blasters, JD McPherson and dancing like you mean it.
