Dax Riggs, Stella Lively 

When: Wed., Dec. 18, 8 p.m. 2013
Price: $10-12
Dax Riggs is a bluesman who has lived through phases of stoner metal and thrash and is not afraid to let that personal pedigree shadow his current work. Supported by a spartan backing of second guitar and rudimentary bass, Riggs drags his tar-stained voice through tales of formidable darkness and depression. His guitar playing starts with the Delta blues and ends with doom metal, meaning his knife-thin riffs are rusty and brittle, flaking in the presence of electric amplifier volume. When once-important heavy metal folks (Riggs was the force behind Acid Bath) regress into folk idioms, the results are often toothless and plain. Riggs' solo material remains savage and damaged, transmissions from a misanthrope who just needed to turn down. —Grayson Haver Currin
