Deadstring Brothers, Corbin Marsh, Dean III & the Wagers, Aida & the 7 Eyes Recommended Soundboard Image

When: Fri., July 5, 7:30 p.m. 2013

In 2010 Detroit native Kurt Marschke moved to Nashville, disbanding the Deadstring Brothers, his decade-old attempt to find new ways to rip off Exile on Main St. But before long he’d assembled a new group of players, and he chose to stick with his old band name for this spring’s Cannery Row (Bloodshot). Even though the new songs, drenched in Pete Finney’s woozy steel guitar and Mike Webb’s honky-tonk piano, carry the scent of 70s SoCal country rock in their languid melodies, Mick Jagger’s swagger is still woven into the DNA of Marschke’s soulful yawp. Still, the record is a nice break from the Rolling Stones worship (except for “Long Lonely Ride,” which sounds like a Mad Libs version of “Dead Flowers”), even though it never plants itself entirely in the soil of Music City. —Peter Margasak Corbin Marsh, Dean III & the Wagers, and Aida & the 7 Eyes open.
