Chief White Lightning: “City’s Alive”

If you’ve been a local live music junkie for the past decade, you’ve probably seen Joshua Logan belting it out with The Blind Pets. Nowadays Logan still romps around with The Pets, but he’s also adopted a new nickname in light of his latest project.

Chief White Lightning (or simply Chief when referring to the titular frontman) electrifies listeners with a stew of punk, psych, country and good ol’ fashioned rock. If that’s not enough for you, the chiefdom of their recent nine-song self-titled album was filled out with production from Battleme’s Matt Drenik and contributions from former Elliot Smith drummer Paul Pulvirenti and multi-instrumentalist Jonas Wilson.

It’s been an exciting past month for the Chief who released that debut album only a couple weeks back and returns from a national tour this Saturday night at the Mohawk as part of Hot Summer Nights!

Let’s pump some blood into the veins of this live music capital right now with “City’s Alive”!
