CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Hal Horowitz Recommends: Shook’s outlaw country is raw and unvarnished. It practically sneers at anything slick or commercial, which tags her as “punk country” in some quarters. This indie rock venue is the perfect place to hear her and her seasoned band of similarly-styled players. Opener War combines blues, gospel, indie folk and country on a new album sure to be a contender for one of this year’s finest. A killer double bill. — HH

From the venue:

North Carolina’s Sarah Shook sings with a conviction and hard honesty sorely lacking in much of today’s Americana landscape. Always passionate, at times profane, Sarah stalks/walks the line between vulnerable and menacing, her voice strong and uneasy, country classic but with contemporary, earthy tension. You can hear in her voice what’s she’s seen; world weary, lessons learned—or not—but always defiant. She level-steady means what she says. Writing with a blunt urgency—so refreshing these days it’s almost startling—Sarah’s lyrics are in turn smart, funny, mean, and above all, uncompromising. The Disarmers hit all the sweet spots from Nashville’s Lower Broad to Bakersfield and take Sarah’s unflinching tales out for some late-night kicks. At times, it’s as simple and muscular as Luther Perkins’ boom-chicka-boom, or as downtown as Johnny Thunders. The Disarmers keep in the pocket, tight and tough.
