We were entertained on a recent car trip by “Honky Tonk Hair,’’ the fab new release by Girl Howdy (Is there a law against dancing in the car?). The five-piece rockabilly band from Western Massachusetts (this music has to come from out west, guys and gals) keeps the classic ’40s-’60s honky-tonk sound alive, drawing inspiration from the likes of Hank Williams, Kitty Wells, and Loretta Lynn. We’re still dancin’ to the title track and workin’ on our hair. The Roy Sludge Trio opens, led by Boston guitarist Al Sheinfeld (a.k.a. Roy Sludge). 9:45 p.m. $10. Johnny D’s, 17 Holland St., Davis Square, Somerville. 617-776-2004. www.johnnyds.com
