The Levon Helm Band

. May 14, 2012.

It’s hard for any musician to stay relevant 50 years after busting onto the scene, let alone racking up a handful of recent well-deserved Grammys, but  the Southern drummer boy from the famed Dylan-backers and Woodstock residers The Band can still play Americana as well as anyone. His howl and drawl still breathe life through the gritty stories he tells about his beloved Dixie Land. And maybe that’s why his music has stayed strong throughout the years; he’s a man of conviction, playing on his own terms. For those of you who have seen the Last Waltz, you know what I’m talking about. 7:30pm. $45-$85. Michigan Theater, East Liberty St. 734-668-8463. www.michtheater.org
