Blind Pig/ March 21
You’ve gotta love some old-school dirty rock & roll, which is exactly what these four shaggy Canadian’s pump out — distorted-power-chord-fueled, high-pitched-solo laced, room-takeover-vocals-ridden beauty. Mixing in just the right amount of Americana sensibility and free-spirited groove, these guys are hard not to like — which is probably why they won a recent Rolling Stone Magazine competition for unsigned acts. Believe me; you’ll fall in love with their audacity to revive something that seems to be lost. $15. 9pm. 208 N. First St. 734-996-8555. www.blindpigmusic.com
