Sawmill Joe gets folky at the hi-dive on Saturday, June 30

You couldn't make up Joe Cheves unless you thought you were being clever and writing some film in collaboration with the Coen brothers about a folksinger from the first half of the twentieth century. Cheves, who fronts Sawmill Joe (due at the hi-dive on Saturday, June 30), looks like he stepped out of another era and sounds like it, too. Instead of merely singing about working hard in soul-crushing conditions, Cheves actually knows what it's like. Far from a quaint affectation, this guy's husky voice was earned.
