THEY ARE COMING!

I didn't even see this!!! Retribution Gospel Choir midwest mini-tour has them in Chicago at Sub-t on Thursday night. I know I have written about them here and elsewhere a few times, but honest to gosh, they are a colossus--when JR and I saw them, we kept trading looks of stun. Real emotionally potent, Sparhawk blasting these languid, overdriven Pancho-licks, sometimes giving Low songs a redux, but it's really like... Mormon valley bloodbath, The Road as parable and a couple Black Uhuru covers we were not expecting but were immaculate stoner-voyages. You will like it, I PROMISE.
