CRITIC’S PICK: If one-man band Biram’s description of his music as “the bastard child of punk, blues, country, hillbilly, bluegrass, chain gang, metal, and classic rock,” doesn’t at least intrigue you, then it’s hard to understand what might. He’s as challenging as that implies and even has a new album (his early self-released discs were on the KnuckleSandwich label), the appropriately titled The One and Only Scott H. Biram to get you hooked on his raw, gripping approach. Opener Partridge is just as captivating, albeit in a less aggressive way, making this a near perfect double bill of subversive singer/songwriters. — Hal Horowitz

From the venue:

Scott H. Biram, a proud Texan raised on the outskirts of Austin, is a maverick in the tradition of Doug Sahm, Roky Erickson (13th Floor Elevators) and Gibby Haines (Butthole Surfers). Shortly after releasing his third record (2003’s Lo-Fi Mojo), the 28-year-old’s life was nearly cut short after a near-fatal head-on collision with a big rig semi. He was still bedridden when he made his Rehabilitation Blues EP, the predecessor to his 2005 debut for Bloodshot Records, The Dirty Old One Man Band.

Abe Partridge is a heralded musician, singer/songwriter, visual artist, and podcaster based in Mobile, Alabama. His 2018 debut, Cotton Fields and Blood For Days earned him rave reviews, with Tony Paris saying in The Bitter Southerner: “He plays guitar the same way he writes lyrics, bashing the strings with abandon until they are just about to come loose, then beautifully picking the notes until every last word falls into place. More to the point, Partridge writes to make you sit up and think. He wants to jar your reality. Sometimes, his lyrics are sly and subtle. Sometimes they come at you with a roar and thunder, as if the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were approaching, and the heavens were opening up to herald a warning.”
