ROCK | J. Roddy Walston 

Back in June of last year, me and a pile of music fans piled into CMAC to be illuminated by The Lumineers. I was there to see Richmond, Virginia's J. Roddy Walston and the Business. With a hint of N'awlins swagger and sweet heat, Walston and his ragged denim crew gave the crowd the business, slaying the damp and shivering hipster dragon with some down-home, rough-and-raw rock 'n' roll. Walston's voice was amazingly soulful but lacked the oft-overwrought trappings of a soul-singer as he swept the piano keys with long hair and nimble fingers.

J. Roddy Walston, Switchfoot, Manchester Orchestra, Blue October, and Man Man play Rover's Holiday Hangover, Friday, January 24, 5:30 p.m. at Main Street Armory, 900 E. Main St. $10-$30.
