Local alt-country/Americana dudes the Deadstring Brothers will play at the Magic Bag in Ferndale on Friday, February 22.
Also on the bill is Brandon Calhoon, Ryan Dillaha and the Brunswicj Brawlers.
They say, “Earning comparisons to the Stones circa Exile on Main Street, Deadstring Brothers are Detroit incarnate. A little rough and tumble, they're roots rock drawing from Muscle Shoals, Soul, and Blues in one fell swoop. The songs are great for cruising around in your Ford, Chevy, or whatever you're driving these days. They rock, pretty much.”
Meanwhile, we said, "The smell of reefer and worn leather hangs heavy throughout this record, creating the aural equivalent of an old car - picture a '91 Ford that has endured a lifetime of smokers and drinkers."
