Cody Canada & The Departed

When: Wed., Jan. 4 2012

When Cross Canadian Ragweed called it quits last year, two-thirds of the original band went home to Yukon, Okla. Guitarist Grady Cross now owns and operates the bar where the group first started playing, while drummer Randy Ragsdale started his own landscaping business. But frontman Cody Canada is apparently a more restless soul. His current band, Cody Canada & the Departed, continues to spread the gospel of Oklahoma "Red Dirt" music, which can be thought of as an indie-flavored update on classic outlaw country. Their all-ages show at the Black Sheep (2106 E. Platte Ave., blacksheeprocks.com) kicks off at 8 p.m. with Jonathan Tyler & the Northern Lights opening. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. — Bill Forman
