Eyehategod and Tab Benoit tonight (Dec.2)

Posted By on Thu, Dec 2, 2010 at 10:45 AM

EYEHATEGOD The rumbling guitars, like slow-moving tanks across scorched earth, are still disorienting. And while sludge rockers Eyehategod, lovingly know as EHG, have clocked detuned, off-tuned, slow mo' guitars as their modus operandi for over two decades, there's an unmistakable blues layer in the reverberations. They mark their signature with sustained chords, amps maxed, bass and drums marching in unison. Also on the bill are Crowbar, Black Tusk and Phobia. $14-$16, Tremont Music Hall,



TAB BENOIT Guitar man Benoit has always sprinkled his brand of blues with Cajun treatments. The sweet riffs, oft amplified with voluminous Texas blues, never blink when it comes to tipping hats to his Cajun and New Orleans roots. His lyrics are sometimes gospel-like, while others are about, well, partying. It's organic and seamless, where blues that can be only born on the bayou linger. Benoit works as a preservationist for the much-beleaguered Louisiana wetlands, to boot. With Anders Osborne & Big Chief Monk Boudreaux. $20-$22. Visulite Theatre.
