Dave Payne used to play in one of the most deliriously quirky yet musically informed rocanrol-cum-country outfits in this burg, an ensemble known as The Saltine Ramblers. As likely to toss out a rendition of a track from The Mollusk as to engage in a banjo and fiddle showdown the likes of which this town rarely sees, The Saltine Ramblers were one of our town’s more beloved—and brilliant—multi-genre, yet American-voiced ensembles. When the Ramblers disbanded a couple of years ago, Payne already had a critically-acclaimed solo record under his belt. Now, backed by a band called Salt Cedar, one of our town’s truly epic talents is playing out again. Dave Payne & Salt Cedar have a gig at Launchpad (618 Central Ave. SW) on Friday, Jan. 5. Go have a listen if you’d like to know exactly what the term Awesome Americana means. High on the Hog and Squash Blossom Boys open. $5 • 9pm • 21+
