Ghost Wolves at the Evening Muse tonight (6/7/2012)

Posted By on Thu, Jun 7, 2012 at 9:00 AM

GHOST WOLVES This is an instance of a new band transcending both its influences and the inherent gimmick of a purposefully anachronistic style. Blanco, Texas, guitar-and-drums duo Ghost Wolves plays visceral, pounding blues-rock. Yeah, I know, The White Stripes and The Black Keys got there first. But Ghost Wolves, refreshingly rowdy and reckless, avoids those bands' self-seriousness. Overdrive becomes a living, breathing, tangible thing in Carley Wolf's slide guitar work, while Jonny Wolf's insistent bass drum drives the duo's stomp-and-shout. Are those real last names? Can't be. With Uncle Lucius. $8. The Evening Muse.
