The 9:30 Club hosts alternative-country group Son Volt tomorrow. Started in 1994 by Jay Farrar, ex-member of the band Uncle Tupelo, the band has gone on to record seven albums and perform at Lollapalooza and on Late Show With David Letterman. Son Volt's repertoire ranges from quiet ballads to hard rock and draws comparisons to American rockers the Jayhawks and classic R.E.M. The quintet performs with Grammy-nominated roots-rocker Bare Bones Jr. Doors open at 9 p.m. The club is at 815 V St. N.W., Washington. $20. Call 800-955-5566 or go to tickets.com.
