There’s been a resurgence of honky-tonk music in Northern California, and Oakland-based outfit Crying Time stands out from the pack with classic vocals and sterling playing. The quintet will celebrate the release of their new record, “Last Saturday Night,” will a show at The Palms Playhouse  on Saturday, Oct. 20 starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20. Hailed by KALX radio as, “Real musicians, not just stompers,” these honky-tonk revisionists play straight-up country and western music, from Bob Wills to Glen Campbell with whistle-stops in between. Their original songs sit pretty in the mix, sounding like tunes you might have heard on your daddy’s stereo when you were little. Jill Rogers is a singer’s singer with a 1974 voice and a story to tell. Guitarist Myles Boisen, a key player in the Bay Area music scene, is a virtuoso of juke joint licks on the six-string and lap steel guitars. Bay Area music scene veteran Tony Marcus’ fiddle weaves through the songs while drummer Tim Rowe and bassist Smilin’ Peter Garellick hold down the rhythm with swing, style and grace. “Last Saturday Night,” the band’s third album, features amix of originals and covers – some well-known classics and others obscure jukebox numbers – honed during the band’s year-long residency at Oakland’s Parkway Lounge. Tracks include songs by artists as diverse as George Jones, Tarheel Slim and Elvis Costello. The band’s originals echo the golden age of country music without veering into pastiche.  Tickets are available Pacific Ace Hardware in Winters, Armadillo Music in Davis, Davids’ Broken Note in Woodland, online via The Palms’ website and Eventbrite and at the door if not sold out.
