DAUGHN GIBSON, THE DELOREANS WITH JONATHAN WOOD & LOWE SUTHERLAND
Zanzabar, 2100 S. Preston St., 8 p.m., $6 in advance/$8 day of show. Daughn Gibson entered the daydreams and fantasies of the general public in the spring of last year with his critically-acclaimed debut album “All Hell.” Gibson shook the ghosts out of scratchy Christian folk records and baptized them as fierce Americana with his booming baritone voice. His songs are as frequently tender as they are prurient, as hopeful as they are brimming with despair. The Deloreans are one of Louisville’s most accomplished groups, with two albums to their credit, “Love Outrageous” and “American Craze.” The duo of Jonathan Wood & Lowe Sutherland is well known to connoisseurs of Louisville music, primarily for their main musical vehicles, Old Baby and Sapat, respectively.
