ROCK/COUNTRY | New Riders of the Purple Sage 

 

Back in the day, New Riders of the Purple Sage played a sort of Robin to The Grateful Dead's Batman as both bands occupied the same psychedelic haze. With The Dead calling it a day, New Riders of the Purple Sage — consisting of original member David Nelson, longtime member Buddy Cage, and a few hired guns — remains among the last outposts of hippie soul but with a cowboy twist. Its sound is braced by country, rock, and bluegrass influences that you can hear in "Panama Red" or other tunes like its Rolling Stones cover, "Dead Flowers."

New Riders of the Purple Sage performs on Tuesday, August 4, at Flour City Station, 170 East Avenue. 9 p.m. $18-$20, flourcitystation.com; thenewriders.com.
