Acoustic/Folk | JD Wilkes w/Jessica Wilkes 

JD Wilkes is one of the last of the truly great carnival sideshow performers. Part madman, part contortionist, Wilkes is a sight to behold. As a member of Nashville's Legendary Shackshakers, Wilkes' on-stage antics were a full-on roots rock demolition derby, often resulting in the spilling of his own blood. His more recent endeavor, The Dirt Daubers with his Rochester-born wife Jessica, is a bluegrass rave-up with the same intensity, but a lot less blood. Wilkes is by far one of the best harmonica players alive, and he and the missus will be joined by Hi-Risers Greg Townson and Jason Smay for this all-star wing-ding.

JD Wilkes w/Jessica Wilkes, Greg Townson, and Jason Smay perform Thursday, December 19, 9 p.m., at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way, $8,
