The Greenhornes 

With the Tough and Lovely and Coffinberry. Friday, November 28, at the Beachland Ballroom.

Upholding Ohio's reputation as a bastion of hard, no-nonsense rawk and roll, the Greenhornes of Cincinnati have emerged as one of the most powerful, accomplished, butt-kicking garage-rock outfits around.

Sure, you've got the Strokes and Hives vying for headlines and MTV airtime, but the Greenhornes sound content to play their local college bar for the next 10 years, as long as the management lets them crank their amps to 11. On their second album, Dual Mono, the highly touted 'Hornes reveal a quantum leap in artistic growth, moving from the sledgehammer sonic attack of their self-titled 2001 debut into an infinitely richer, reverb-drenched soundscape. Each track on this album is a standout: a resonant, well-sculpted sonic gem, with glittering, slinky melodies backed by a muscular, sweaty beat.
