The acclaimed Detroit-based rock band Deadstring Brothers will play at Rock Island Brewing Company, 1815 2nd Ave., at 9:30 p.m. Saturday. Cover charge will be $5.|
The band's most recent CD, 2010's "Sao Paulo," drew much praise and coverage, with Maverick (UK) calling it "real whiskey-soaked rocking country/blues music," and "heart-wrenching, bulldozing, guitar-laden, in-your-face country-rock."
The Chicago Reader said the album is filled with "flinty, soulful performances that bring infectious vitality to bluesy rockers and boozy honky-tonk." And the Nashville Scene stated: "On their newest, 'Sao Paulo,' specifically 'Houston' and 'The River Song,' singer-guitarist Kurt Marschke spurs the band to an uncanny approximation of the Stones in their raunchy '70s prime, while expanding their sound to encompass space-transmission blues and woozy, heartsick country balladry. Recommended to anyone who's ever worn out a cassette copy of 'Let It Bleed.'"
CMT has said: "Trying to make up its mind between gritty and defiant or sweet and sentimental, this is what a city in free fall — like Detroit was last year — sounds like." And the Detroit Free Press said the band's "organic, just-raggedy rock is smartly conceived and sublimely executed, a hearty sound that recalls gritty British rock of the early '70s."
Deadstring Brothers' CD "Silver Mountain" was named one of the best Records of 2007 by American Songwriter.
