On Friday night, Sept. 12, Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) hosts The Saltine Ramblers’ 10th anniversary show. Americana-literate—with influences ranging from Ween to the Grateful Dead—the Ramblers put on shows that range from lyrically laconic to tight and tension-filled. As an ensemble they perform with an instrumental prowess that reaches far beyond the borders of genre. Kevin Strange (guitar, vocals), Cory Minefee (guitar, vocals), David Ivey (fiddle, mandolin, vocals) and Dave Payne (bass, squeeze, vocals) have been part of the local scene for nigh on a decade. Their work engages in a dust-up with everything folk-rock aspires to, leaving sparkly traces in concert hall corners; those corners may or may not be part of a parallel reality where Americana both acknowledges its antecedents and improves upon their next iteration. Wildewood, Peg Leg Joe and Pawn Drive open. Eight Washingtons get you into this 21-plus show. The doors open at 7pm, and the jam spreads at 8pm.
