Sourvein | Clubs & Concerts | Indy Week
This is a past event.


When: Wed., March 2, 9 p.m. 2011

No opener has been announced for this show. But, really, Sourvein doesn't need one. The long-running Wilmington doom crew has been lugging riffs like bags of cannonballs for almost 20 years, and with new album Black Fangs on the horizon, it shows no sign of quitting soon. Singer T. Roy Medlin leads the band with a raspy howl (not unlike the one favored by Weedeater's Dixie Dave Collins). But where other like-minded acts suck their riffs deeper, slower into bottomless pits of sludge, Sourvein's sound is more brackish and foggy, like a ghost ship inching its way along a marshy coast in a very dark night. — Bryan Reed
