On her third album, Big City Blues, the Canadian-born, Austin-based Sue Foley applied her sultry drawl and razor-sharp Telecaster licks to a set drawn from the 12-bar blues catalogs of Willie Dixon, Buddy Guy, and Bob Dylan. Walk in the Sun, Foley and Co.’s fourth release, contains only originals. While still emphasizing traditional blues themes in numbers such as “Train to Memphis,” it seems to be their bid for wider exposure; the title cut and “Love Sick Child,” in particular, conjure up visions of a VH-1-era Bonnie Raitt singing Dylan’s most melodic pop material. With One Thin Dime at 9 p.m. at Twist & Shout, 4800 Auburn Ave., Bethesda. $8. (301) 652-3383. (Steve Kiviat)
