Last summer, an injury to Dusty, the bassist, the one with the beard, forced the Top to cancel its Ravinia gig. We were bummed. The sharp dressed men still ply their trade on countless road dates, rehashing rock grooves like "Le Grange" and "Sharp Dressed Man" in trademark Amish-meets-roadhouse garb. Opening is Atlanta Southern boogie revivalist Blackberry Smoke, who find a groove between the Black Crowes and Skynyrd and rock it. It's one of the younger acts you'll find at Ravinia all season.
