It's Atlanta's Jackson Rohm's boredom that'll save you from yours. Rohm rolls well within the contemporary pop/country idiom, dipping his wheels in rock 'n' roll grease. Rohm barnstorms the United States a la carte, his songs fleshed out and dressed up in a beautiful, detailed Americana. On disc and backed up, the man has the stain of the hardcore troubadour on his hands. It ain't "Copperhead Road," but it ain't country fluff either. Good stuff.
Jackson Rohm plays Friday, December 28, at 5 p.m. at Johnny's Irish Pub, 1382 Culver Road. Free. 224-0990, johnnysirishpub.com.
