Break Out The Leather For Guitar Wolf At Trees.
By Cory on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at 7:30 AM
Whether you're ramping up for the weekend or just resting up for it, there are a number of ways to enjoy this hump day. Your top options? An upscale charity cookout and a head-rattling punk show at Trees, each of which should propel you full bore into another Thursday that once again looks to be the busiest night of the week. On the other end of the spectrum, a discounted sushi dinner and a low-key folk show might just be what's needed to re-energize those batteries.
Hayes Carll at Dan's Silverleaf
Mature, thoughtful lyrics and a blend of folk and maverick country have earned Carll many comparisons to folks like Townes Van Zandt over the years. His latest record, KMAG YOYO, is taken from the military abbreviation for "Kiss my ass guys, you're on your own."
Guitar Wolf at Trees
Japanese power punk trio Guitar Wolf are known as "The World's Greatest Jet Rock Band," but it has nothing to do with how their blistering volumes and blazing tempos resemble the engine of plane. Rather, the nickname comes from the group's frontman, Seiji, who considers Joan Jett his greatest influence. Our favorite story from a Guitar Wolf live show involves Seiji crawling offstage during a Dallas show and puking before coming back for the encore. The Transistors and Missile open this rather slick leather-clad punk bill.
