NOVEMBER 12

As fluid as their slide guitars, Memphis’ Grifters slip and stumble toward a state of grace; in the open spaces on the band’s recent One Sock Missing, you can even catch a glimpse of that lo-fi blues-rock grail, Exile on Main Street. With half-broiled Chicago blues-rockers Red Red Meat, who’d like to be Exiled too, and Solid State at 8 p.m. at the 9:30 Club, 930 F St. NW. $8. (202) 393-0930. (Mark Jenkins)
