Back Porch Mary 

Tuesday, December 31, at Davey's Uptown.

Given Back Porch Mary's knack for blurring the lines between blues, rock, country and metal, the band's current home of Austin, Texas, is a perfect fit. However, this high-energy outfit actually got its start in Manhattan, Kansas, in 1995. Although the band's lineup has changed slightly since then, it remains a perennial area favorite thanks to a heavy touring schedule that brings the group back through the Midwest on a regular basis. The group's self-titled debut, released this past fall, was shepherded by veteran producer Stuart Sullivan, whose credits include a variety of high-profile acts, including Willie Nelson, Sublime, the Supersuckers and the Meat Puppets. Sullivan's experience pays off as BPM successfully translates its raucous live sound to the sometimes-stifling confines of the studio. That in itself is no small feat for a young act, but Back Porch Mary's main appeal is that it doesn't sound like one.
