Concert tonight: Fiddle me this

It's probably no surprise that soul-centric Muscle Shoals can give birth to a great Southern rock act, even years after the city's heyday.

So trust us when we tell you the Fiddleworms, who play tonight at The Loft in Columbus (1032 Broadway, 706-596-8141), are worth a listen. Point of trivia: Guitarist and sometimes vocalist Rob Malone had a several-year stint with acclaimed road warriors the Drive-By Truckers.

Pianist Jenni Alpert opens the show around 10 p.m. Cover is $5.
