I’ve raved about them before, and I’ll probably do it again. Make way for the dirty blues-rock sounds of local trio The Black Owl Society.
Featuring drummer Charlie Jones, guitarist Nate Boff, and bassist/lead vocalist Buffalo, the BOS throws down a pretty mean roots jam, more toward the darker end of the twelve-bar boogie/rock ‘n’ roll spectrum, leaning a bit more on the rock side but chock full of grimy, gritty blues riffs. While there’s no doubt they get a lot of inspiration from Texas-style blues, their influences are a little broader and heavier. Collectively, the trio has an impressive resume, including Buffalo’s experience as an original member of Native American family band Indigenous.
You have a chance to check out The Black Owl Society this Saturday night at the Scoot Inn, 1308 E. 4th St. There will also be sets by Waking Fable and Patrick’s Beard on the same bill. Doors open at 9:30 p.m. Recommended.
