Amy LaVere

8 p.m. Thursday, December 27. Off Broadway, 3509 Lemp Avenue.

Amy LaVere
Joshua Black Wilkins

Amy LaVere could have been the honky-tonk angel to end all honky-tonk angels, but the pull of the blues, soul and rock & roll was too strong. There's still plenty of country in her wickedly rasped voice and pumping bass, only she never plays the twang straight; she always bends it toward the jukes and the swamps. A student of the late Jim Dickinson and collaborator with his son Luther, LaVere isn't just a pretty face with a pretty voice. She's guided by the spirits of her native Memphis, and she'll take you all the way there.

Something About a 78: LaVere held a steady gig as a tour guide at Sun Studios, so it's no surprise that she recently cut a 78, direct to disc, with documentary filmmaker Alex Steyermark.
