North Mississippi Allstars
Last Concert Cafe, February 1

Sons of the late Jim Dickinson, the legendary Memphis producer and sometime Rolling Stones sideman, Luther and Cody Dickinson grew up on punk but couldn't help absorbing the abundant rootsy sounds around them. Logically, their band North Mississippi Allstars infused the music of the nearby Mississippi hill country, the near-hypnotic patterns of bluesmen like Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside, into their brawny Southern rock.

That was nearly 15 years ago, and the Allstars have only gotten tighter while becoming a standby on the jam-band and festival circuit. The band's most recent album is 2012's I'm Not Dead, I'm Just Gone, a collaboration with Jim, who passed in 2009. CHRIS GRAY


Sum 41
Warehouse Live, February 1

This is still kinda funny, right? But has it really been 12 years since "Fat Lip"? CHRIS GRAY


The Tontons, Wild Moccasins, Young Mammals, Featherface
Walters, Februrary 2

Three of Houston's top indie bands in their prime, and one who recently returned to active duty from a rather lengthy hiatus (the Mammals), add up to one hot ticket. The Tontons are pushing their brand-new 7-inch, "Bones." CHRIS GRAY


Gojira
Warehouse Live, February 2

French heavy-metal act Gojira's album L'Enfant Sauvage was one of the best-received metal discs of 2012, as well as their first set for their new label home Roadrunner. But Gojira is no metal band come lately, recording mostly demos from 1996 through their proper debut in 2001, Terra Incognita. Here's hoping that the mighty Sauvage, now their fifth album overall, is only the beginning of Gojira's reign in the metal sun. With Devin Townsend and the Atlas Moth. CRAIG HLAVATY
