Cost: $29.50-$35+
CRITIC’S PICK: Kansas City’s favorite roots rocking daughter has come a long way since she broke out as a blues shredder in 2011. She’s since moved into both soul (Chills and Fever, 2017) and more strident garage rock with country and blues tinges, the latter highlighted by last year’s Grammy-nominated collaboration with Jesse Dayton. She’s back with her own band, still slinging that cigar box guitar and promoting songs from the forceful Faster (2021). — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

The first-ever collaborative album from Samantha Fish and Jesse Dayton, Death Wish Blues is a body of work born from a shared passion for pushing the limits of blues music. For both Fish and Dayton, the making of Death Wish Blues helped fulfill their longtime mission of opening up the blues genre to entirely new audiences. “I’ve played all kinds of music in my life, punk and country and Americana and so much else, and for me this was another wonderful rabbit hole to fall down,” says Dayton. “I love that it’s coming at a moment when we’re starting to see the resurgence of rock guitar for the first time in a long time, and I think it’s going to turn a lot of people on to a kind of music they’ve never experienced before.” Fish adds: “The main reason why I make music has always been the connection it creates with others. It’s a way to communicate with the world around me, to tell stories that people can then take and apply to their own lives and maybe feel more understood. We had such a fun time making this album, and I hope that it leaves everyone with the same feeling of joy that we all felt in the studio.”
