Hanni El Khatib, Where the Buffalo Roamed 

When: Tue., June 28, 9:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $8

California's Hanni El Khatib is probably about to be very famous. El Khatib's background—he's of mixed Palestinian and Filipino descent—only makes his obsession and articulation of raw, sneering American blues-rock that much more intriguing. Not that he really needs help: He's got the hooky finesse of the Black Keys and the wiry menace of Dexter Romweber two decades ago, not to mention a recent opening spot for Florence & the Machine and a string of singles that, after one listen, stick directly between the ears. El Khatib is the sort of canny bastard who can stare at you cold and sing "I'll be glad when you're dead, you rascal you," and have you sing it right back at him, smiling. The next time he comes our way, expect it to be in a space bigger than Local 506. Where the Buffalo Roamed open the $8 show at 9:30 p.m.—Grayson Currin
