When: Wed., Aug. 11, 9:15 p.m. 2010
Price: $12

Dax Riggs' broad stylistic palette and inborn idiosyncrasy have served him well. While his songs are constructed from familiar elements, they move in a distinct manner, blending hard rock muscularity, bar-band boogie and psych-rock adventurism. His arch muffled vocal delivery suggests Marc Bolan, giving the music a certain swagger. This stuff's not particularly hooky, but it possesses enough restless abandon and pugnacious punch to inspire most rock fans. Riggs doesn't immediately win your heart, but rather he entices you with eccentricity and wears away your resistance with sturdy throb. The rich character of Riggs music outlasts Hoge's more nascent rock sophistication. —Chris Parker
