The Wilders bummed some of us out earlier this month by announcing that they’re taking an “indefinite hiatus” after 12 years as a band. Lucky for Kansas City, the country-bluegrass act had already booked a few local gigs, including this Sunday at 4 and 6:30 p.m. at the Reading Reptile in Brookside. Another appearance is two days earlier at Liberty Hall, where they open for Pokey LaFarge. LaFarge slicks his hair back, wears a baggy suit and generally looks like a character on Boardwalk Empire. He and his band come from St. Louis and draw inspiration from 1920s and ’30s American music — a stew of ragtime, Dixieland, blues and folk. And they recently cut a 7-inch for Jack White’s Third Man Records called “Chittlin’ Cookin’ Time in Cheatham County,” which is perhaps the finest song title of 2011.
