Roger Creager and Kevin Fowler

If we boast of our wide-ranging country music scene, it's because it is what it is. This week, we've got under-the-radar (but extremely popular) Roger Creager and Kevin Fowler at Joe's. Creager's songs tell stories of life lived to the fullest and come from his personal adventures: climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, spear-fishing near oil rigs, playing music on Italian countrysides and stuff like that. Fowler's music is also a mirror of his world: young, hell-raisin', beer-drinkin' honky tonk (some of Fowler's song titles: "Beer, Bait and Ammo," "Hell Yeah, I Like Beer," "Don't Touch My Willie [Nelson]").

Why go: </b>We are as happy to see the beginning of the country music invasion as we were to see 70 degrees in March.
<br><br><b>
Reconsider:</b> You don't like beer.

Details: </b>8 p.m. Friday at Joe's, 940 W. Weed St.; $10; 866-468-3401, ticketweb.com
