40 Acre Mule

40 Acre Mule plays Dan’s Silverleaf next Thursday, Aug. 29, with Seth James. 40 Acre Mule is, from left: Chris Evetts, Robert Anderson, J. Isaiah Evans, Tim Cooper and John Pedigo.

A little bit of roots — the stuff of Bo Diddley and Chuck Berry — and a lot of rock make Dallas five-piece 40 Acre Mule a rough-and-tumble blues outfit.

The band has a 10-track record, Good Night and Good Luck, due out on Friday. With tracks like “You Better Run,” the band burns up the pavement with songs about romance-gone bad. The record spends a little time behind bars, too, in “16 Days,” which might be the consequence for a mortal chase to finish off an unfaithful consort.

Outfitted with Delta-blues bass and guitar licks, a growling saxophone here and there and a shivering organ, the band promises to unpack a set of nostalgic sounds.

40 Acre mule will share the bill with guitarist Seth James.
