Whiskey Daredevils/The Torments/Lords of the Highway 

When: Fri., Oct. 19, 9 p.m. 2018
Price: $8 ADV, $10 DOS
One of our favorite local acts, the Whiskey Daredevils have just released their latest effort, American Songbook, and it’s another winner. The disc, the band's 13th album, commences with the Blasters-meets-Johnny Cash anthem “Big Wheels,” a tune that uses a gnarly guitar solo to show off their heavier side. Other highlights include the twangy surf guitar romp "101.1 Gram Man Bracelet" and the wacky "Bad Times," a tune that features some sweet pedal steel guitar and hiccuping vocals. The group recorded the tunes last summer in Detroit at Rust Belt Studios with producer John Smerek. It's the last record with guitarist Gary Siperko, who left the band in January, and singer Greg Miller maintains the album represents “a collection of songs seeped in the muck of Americana while maintaining the Whiskey Daredevils skewed vision of what rock n' roll is supposed to be in today's world.” They'll have physical copies on hand tonight for the release party.
