Deadstring Brothers w/Great Peacock & Chelsea CrowellPop/Rock
Bluesy ’70s-inspired country-rock bands aren’t exactly a rare breed. But the Deadstring Brothers can evoke something that most of their scruffy peers can’t: hedonism. They don’t just immortalize the hard knocks that come with hard living; they make it sound like there’s pleasure in it too. Frontman Kurt Marschke deserves a lot of the credit for that — he doesn’t seem to overthink his songwriting, and most importantly, he can muster a big lascivious sneer when a number calls for it. In fact, the Jagger-like quality of his singing is one reason the band has been endlessly compared to the Stones. Throughout their decade-long existence, the Brothers have been thought of as a Detroit outfit, but this is technically a local show for Marschke, since he’s been making his home in Nashville of late.
