Seeing live music can be a transcendent mind-body experience, akin to getting a tattoo underwater or making out during an eclipse. Transcend boredom with today's Groupon: for $29, you get two tickets to see David Allan Coe perform at the Mississippi Moon Bar inside of Diamond Jo Casino in Dubuque on Saturday, June 4, at 8 p.m. (up to a $57.50 value). Tickets are for standing-room areas on the floor and mezzanine. You must be 21 or older to purchase tickets and to attend this show.
David Allan Coe, a renegade musician whose calling card also lists magician and movie actor, raucously lacquers auditory passageways with guitar licks and vocal melodies that span the spectrum of American roots rock and outlaw country. The 4onthefloor, a Minneapolis country-rock band with a passion for rugged rhythms and ground-bound even numerals, kicks things off on stage to warm up the speaker system and the audience. Then, for the main event, Coe will strap on his axe and perform a bevy of his twangy tunes from across his four-decade career, including “You Never Even Called Me By My Name,” “The Ride,” and “Mona Lisa Lost Her Smile.”
