The Devil Made Em Do It
In the Deep South, where billboards warn of the Lords comeback and snake-handling churches dot the hills, the long-held rift between good and evil is deeply ingrained. So how does one ward off demons in such a place? If youre Col. J.D. Wilkes, you start a band called Th Legendary Shack Shakers. As the bands founding front man (theyve been exorcising demons since the mid-90s), critics have called Col. J.D. Wilkes a cross between Iggy Pop and a Southern preacher with the devil in his pants. Their style of Southern gothic is possessed by blues, faith, rockabilly, and blood-thirty hill folk. Testify when Th Legendary Shack Shakers play Churchills Pub (5501 NE Second Ave., Miami), with Pine Hill Haints and The Van Orsdels. Doors are at 9 p.m., and $10 gets you in. Call 305-757-1807, or visit churchillspub.com.
