Dollar Store harks back to the wild-eyed days when bands such as the Blasters and Jason & the Scorchers threatened to bring country to rock and roll, and vice versa. Their self-titled debut (recently released on Bloodshot Records) is stocked with robust countrified rockers, from the album opener, "New Country," to the closer, "Little Autocrat." Schlabowske also shines when he slows things down; the eloquent, working-class tale "Beyond Our Means" stands up with the best of Dave Alvin (who also guests on the album). Live, he's aided by bassist Alan Doughty and drummer Joe Camarillo -- two old Waco comrades -- as well as German roots-rock guitarist Tex Schmidt. Come out and see how they reinvent Cher's dance hit "Believe" as Americana.
