No, the North Mississippi Allstars isn't a sexual position. It's a band. And if you haven't listened to their Grammy-nominated shit, you should. If you've heard the album but never seen them perform live, you should make this the first to-do on your Being An Un-Lame-O Starting Now list. At 8 p.m. Wednesday, see the North Mississippi Allstars country-rock out with their contemporary-blues-and-sometimes-even-hip-hop cocks out at the House of Blues, 2200 N Lamar St. Tickets are $5, so you'd better go. Because if House of Blues starts not making money on these kinds of cheap shows featuring cool bands, they'll stop doing them. And then, we'll all be looking at their event calendar pissed off because every show is a million fafillion dollars and we'll have to come beat you up for ruining everything by not going to see NMA for cheap.
