The North Mississippi Allstars: Irving Plaza, New York
Kandia Crazy Horse, PopMatters, 22 March 2002
AT THIS POINT, going to witness the North Mississippi Allstars live in performance is somewhat akin to seeing god. Now a four-piece including guitarist/vocalist/multi-instrumentalist DuWayne Burnside of the legendary Burnside clan, the NMAS are not flawless but rather perfect in a way that Surrealists describing the meeting of an umbrella and a sewing machine could appreciate. Perhaps Luther & Cody Dickinson ought to steal the moniker Perfect Imperfections from their fellow great southern sonic ambassador Cee-Lo Green.
Total word count of piece: 642
