Tuesday To-Do: The Greenhornes

Posted By on Mon, May 23, 2011 at 1:00 PM


9:30 p.m., Stickyz. $10

If making garage rock was as easy as The Greenhornes and Jeff the Brotherhood make it look, we'd all be sideburns deep in co-eds and ditch weed. The Cincinnati, Ohio, trio of The Greenhornes may not have found arena-rock glory like others in the Garage Rock High class of 2001, but their brand of dusty 45" rock has stayed fuzzy and thick with Detroit by-way-of London '60s rock. Since debuting, their sound has been embraced by Jack White and his Third Man roster; two-thirds of the band is also in The Raconteurs.

Jeff the Brotherhood, on the other hand, is just now finding a strong footing aboveground. The Nashville drums-and-guitar duo may be stuck in the shadow of The Black Keys, but its style of psych-garage adds a fistful of punk swagger to the old blues formula.

Check it out:
