Rev. Peyton's Big Damn Band 

9 p.m. Tuesday, September 7. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

The Reverend Peyton is the definition of a "man's man." He's the kind of guy whose beard has its own beard. (Seriously, check Google Images.) Think of him as the Midwest's version of Gogol Bordello's Eugene Hütz — a wild, gregarious man with an endless amount of charisma and stage presence. (It's no surprise that he's signed to Gogol Bordello's old label, SideOneDummy.) Peyton and his Big Damn Band (whose members include his wife, Breezy, and his cousin, Aaron Persinger) peddle country-fried blues and knee-slapping folk that's tailor-made to make you quiver and shake like you're being healed at a '30s tent revival. And while we're not sure he's an actual reverend, he is, in fact, a Kentucky Colonel. Take that, Hütz.
