Deadboy and the Elephantmen 

Thursday, September 28, at the Record Bar

The blues-rock duo is hardly a novelty these days, but Louisiana's Deadboy and the Elephantmen stands up to the best of them. Dax Riggs, whose sinister lyrics and soulful vocals once fueled death-metal acts such as Acid Bath and Agents of Oblivion, now teeters between swampy Delta stompers and garage folk with one finger planted firmly on the doomsday button. As co-conspirator, Tessie Brunet rounds out his deep, rugged voice with delicate harmonizing and serious panache on the drum kit. The two-piece has toured endlessly since the release of We Are Night Sky, an album dark enough to give Jack and Meg's shadow the slip.
