In case you haven’t noticed, Nashville’s become a magnet for musicians with experience mashing up blues and rock in two-piece bands. Ted Drozdowski — the slide guitar-playing frontman, occasional Scene contributor and, at times, only official member of The Scissormen — isn’t nearly as well known as the ex-White Stripe or The Black Keys. But he gets a lot of power out of the leanest of lean lineups — like the aforementioned bands do — and he’s got a psychedelic, ear-grabbing take on hill-country blues. Drozdowski and drummer Adam Snow — who just moved to Nashville — are playing The Family Wash every Wednesday in March. On this particular night, they’ll be joined by Taylor Hollingsworth, guitarist for Conor Oberst’s Mystic Valley Band and (when he’s playing on his own) an offbeat, bluesy singer-songwriter. Instead of a new album, Drozdowski’s promoting a documentary made by Robert Mugge — Big Shoes: Walking and Talking the Blues — that captures a Scissormen tour of the Midwest.
