Voodoo Organist 

Tuesday, June 10, at the Brick.

A versatile instrument, the organ can add an angelic glow to hymns, an eerie hum to horror movies, and seedy soul to gritty garage rock. In the hands of Scott Wexton, the Voodoo Organist, it achieves all of these objectives on a single album, Exotic Demonic Blues. Wexton alternates between haunting and holy tones, incorporating upbeat instruments into his rollicking revival numbers and pumping up the percussion on his blues tunes. Like evident influences such as Screamin' Jay Hawkins and Tom Waits, he whistles through the graveyards, using his abundant charisma to persuade listeners to follow him into haunted territory.
