Gig Alerts: The Craziest Monday Night We've Seen Around Here In Some Time...
This time around, White's cohorts in crime include Alison Mosshart (of The Kills and Discount), Dean Fertita (of Queens of the Stone Age) and Jack Lawrence (of The Raconteurs and The Greenhornes). Now, I know it seems like White forms a supergroup just about every weekend, but this newest creation succeeds more on Mosshart's vocal chutzpah than on White's blues riffing. Horehound, The Dead Weather's fine debut came out this past July and songs such as "No Hassle Night", "Hang You From the Heavens" and "Treat Me Like Your Mother" are better than a lot of stuff slumming on those now ancient White Stripes albums. [Editor's note: For real. Later today, we'll have a review of the Dead Weather's mind-blowing ACL set.]
Oh, and if none of those four music options suits your tastes, but you still want to check out a live show? Well, there's still more: A great alt-country band with local ties (and the subject of this week's upcoming DC9 in SPACE epidosde), Hymns plays tonight at the City Tavern along with The O's.
Whew! Why can't every Monday be like this?
