COLUMN: TEN THINGS TO DO
Barrence Whitfield - best known for his work with the Savages - has a sound that's ripped from history, a classic '50s rock 'n' roll sound that manifests on songs such as "Music Keeps Rollin' On" and "Geronimo Stomp." Even when he moves beyond the soda fountain sound - such as on the Little Richard-esque screecher "(Your Love is Like a) Ramblin' Rose" and the soulful "I Want Your Affection Not the House of Correction" - he still seems transposed in time, singing from a place where rock 'n' roll was fresh and new. Barrence Whitfield performs with the Delta Generators at 9 p.m. Jan. 18 at Beatnik's, 433 Park Ave., Worcester. (508) 926-8877.
