Deadstring Brothers

When: Fri., Feb. 26, 8 p.m. 2010

Exile on Main Street, Er, Gallatin Road

We’ve never really thought of Detroit as Southern Rock City, but here come The Deadstring Brothers representing Motown with slide guitars and Allmans-style boogie blazing. On their newest, Sao Paolo (Bloodshot), specifically “Houston” and “The River Song,” singer-guitarist Kurt Marschke spurs the band to an uncanny approximation of the Stones in their raunchy ’70s prime, while expanding their sound to encompass space-transmission blues and woozy, heartsick country balladry. Recommended to anyone who’s ever worn out a cassette copy of Let It Bleed.
