Scott H. Biram once performed right after Kris Kristofferson at SXSW. Rather than wilt under the pressure, he allegedly told the crowd "They said that was a hard act to follow ... I'm a hard act to follow motherfuckers." And that's the swaggering sentiment Biram brings to all aspects of his life. Through the traditional Americana and contemporary rock instrumentation, the one-man act waxes poetic about being crazy and drunk and blue. His records serve up helping after helping of raw hillbilly blues stew, including his recent album, The Bad Testament. Expect the unexpected from his Beachland Ballroom set. (Laura Morrison)
