The Greenhornes 

Thursday, June 17, at the Beachland Ballroom.

The Greenhornes are from Cincinnati, but with their pulsating blues- and soul-inspired rock and cool scruffy looks, they may as well be straight outta London circa 1964, playing alongside the likes of such bad boys as the Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, and the Spencer Davis Group.

Probably the most authentic revivalists on the scene today, the Greenhornes avoid the silly costumes and gimmickry that have plagued certain fellow travelers and let the music do all the talking on their infectious live set and three stellar records: 1999's frantic debut Gun for You, 2001's R&B-laced self-titled follow-up, and 2002's Dual Mono, which added pristine pop elements to the mix (including contributions from garage rock's leading lady, Holly Golightly, who provided lead vocals on two tracks). The star of the show on all three albums is vocalist-guitarist Craig Fox, who brings to mind a cross between Mick Jagger and Eric Burdon in his ability to wail with the best of them on the soaring raveups and provide the requisite melancholic accompaniment to whiskey sippin' on the slow-burning ballads.
