Shooter Jennings at the Canal ClubFor those who thought their agent was sure to get them cast as Waylon Jennings in "Walk the Line," you faced a whole gene pool to swim through. Waylon's son Shooter played the role, probably better than you, and continues the hell-raising renegade country legacy with that youngster rock sound mixed in. April 21 at 8:30 p.m. $12-$14. 643-2582.
Hot Day at the Zoo at Bogart's Back Room"Zoograss," eh? Bluegrass with lots of funny smells? No, this Lowell, Mass., five-piece is more folk and blues than monkeys and aardwolves. It's not exactly tamed, so maybe that has something to do with it. Add another genre to your list April 20 at 9 p.m. $5. 353-9280.
