Steel master Robert Randolph tempers the sour of his music's hellbent fury with sweet salvation. This ain't no 'Can I get an amen?' Gospel schlock either. Randolph is a righteous barn-burner. With his new album, "Lickety Split" in tow, Randolph returns this time with a little Rochester in its blood. Former Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad keyboardist, Aaron Lipp joined the Family Band after hooking up with them through — believe it or not — Craigslist. Boston soul-shouter Jesse Dee opens the show.
Robert Randolph and the Family Band perform Saturday, December 14, 8 p.m., atWater Street Music Hall, 204 North Water St., $25, waterstreetmusic.com.
