The Werks

. April 1, 2014.

Hailing from Dayton, Ohio, The Werks captivate audiences with their self-described “psychedelic dance rock” jam style–read: looping mixolydian guitar scales and synth-y organ tones over funky basslines and groove-driven drum beats. They have been growing national attention over the last few years thanks in part to playing notable music festivals and encouraging fans to tape and distribute their shows for free.

The Werks’ show on Thursday, April 17 at The Blind Pig should be no different. 9pm. $10 adv/$12 day of. The Blind Pig, 208 S. First St. 734-996-8555. Blindpigmusic.com
