Since then, Silos founder Walter Salas-Humara has soldiered on, putting out a number of fine discs. Last year's When the Telephone Rings (on Dualtone) stands as their strongest since the early days. It's a bracing set of rootsy rock. Salas-Humara's songs maintain a sense of hope, despite acknowledging that life rarely plays fair. The current Silos lineup -- featuring bassist/lap-steel player Drew Glackin and percussionist Konrad Meissner -- has been together for several years. They're a confident, road-tested trio that can rev up a crowd with driving rockers as well as move them on the quieter, introspective numbers. Headlining the show is Steve Wynn, a fellow '80s cult figure and former Dream Syndicate frontman, who has gone on to a vital solo career. Salas-Humara and Wynn are survivors still making music that matters.
