You know what would be cool? If Celia Woodsmith and Daphne Glover sang onstage together.

It could happen. Soon. After all, Woodsmith sings for the Boston-by-way-of-Vermont band Hey Mama, and Glover fronts our own Roadside Attractions, and both acts share the Oasis Pub bill Saturday.

While Hey Mama emphasizes a bluesier approach to roots music, and the Attractions have that country/torch flavor, both bands are accomplished and both singers are excellent. Hell, maybe both bands will climb onstage together. Why not?

Throw in opener Brad Besko, whose clever pop is garnering a lot of attention, and this night has more than a little potential.

Hey Mama, Roadside Attractions and Brad Besko, 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Oasis Pub, 16 Bank St., New London; $5 (21+ show); (860) 447-3929.
