Jimbo Mathus

Although Jimbo Mathus may not be well-known for his solo work, the collaborations and recordings he has done with other artists most certainly are; a fact that is mainly due to Mathus’ work with such high-profile artists as Elvis Costello, Buddy Guy and North Mississippi Allstars, not because his solo work isn’t up to par.

In fact, Mathus’s solo work is some of his grittiest and most provoking blues work yet.

After building a name for himself with the Squirrel Nut Zippers, Mathus went on to release several solo records in a style he calls “Mississippi Music,” a collaboration of blues, soul, country and gospel.

He is currently touring behind his ninth solo album, “White Buffalo,” which he released earlier this year.

Jimbo Mathus and the Tri-State Coalition will appear Thursday at The Pour House, 1977 Maybank Highway.

Tickets are $12 and are available at the door or online at Etix.com. Doors open at 9 p.m.

Baroness

Savannah-based band Baroness has spent the past decade refining a proprietary sound that welds grungy, alternative rock to a sturdy frame of heavy metal, constructing a burly yet melodic throwback to hard rock’s glory days.

Though the band’s popularity has climbed in the mainstream in recent years, typically a death sentence for metal and punk bands, Baroness preserves its original musical intentions by staying close to the foundation it laid 10 years ago.

The band is currently touring in support of its most recent album, 2012’s “Yellow & Green.”

Baroness will perform Tuesday at the Music Farm, 32 Ann St., with True Widow.

Tickets are $15 at the door, the Music Farm box office or online at TicketFly.com.

Doors open at 7 p.m., with the show starting at 8 p.m.

Acoustic Syndicate

After nearly two decades as an enduring band, Acoustic Syndicate is as respectable as they come.

For more than two decades, the North Carolina-based quintet has written and performed progressive bluegrass with a country twang and a little funkiness, resulting in an overall feel-good style that is equal parts soothing and electric.

Acoustic Syndicate will perform Friday at The Pour House, 1977 Maybank Highway.

Tickets are $13 in advance, $15 the day of the show, and are available at the door or online at Etix.com.

Doors open at 9 p.m., with the show starting at 10 p.m.
