Black Joe Lewis is at the Bottleneck this Sunday
Black Joe Lewis was last in the KC area in February for what was most likely a wall-shaking show at Knuckleheads Saloon. If you didn’t get to experience Lewis and his band’s skin-crawling, unholy blues then, you best get yourself to the Bottleneck Sunday.
Lewis mercilessly rips through the songs on his latest album, Electric Slave, like a bloodthirsty pirate. His beastly voice fronts a ferocious assembly of electric guitar and swinging drumbeats. If it weren’t for the occasional horn interspersed, the album would probably scare children. All the same, maybe leave the kids at home.
