Slim Cessna's Auto Club and Smokin' Uncle Rumley and the Pork-Boilin' Po' Boys, Thursday, November 16, at the Bluebird Theater, are a one-two punch aimed straight at people who love country music but fear that admitting it puts them just below Pat Buchanan on the hipness scale. The members of these bands were trained in the new-rock tradition, but the music they're making these days won't be confused with anything by Foo Fighters. Instead, they take a reverent yet wry approach to C&W traditions, all in the pursuit of a ten-gallon-hat-sized good time. So strap on a belt with a buckle the size of a turkey platter and get on down there, y'all. Because the price of admission is your ticket to hayseed heaven.
