The Rockridge Brothers 

When: Thu., July 15, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $10

The combination of punk roots and mountain music is a time-tested, and frequently invigorating, culture clash. Ask anyone who ever saw the Black Flag sticker on the upright bass of Bad Liver Mark Rubin spin around or, for a more local reference, anyone who ever heard ex-Lubricator Kenny Roby sing the Louvin Brothers' "Lorene." But factor in the Stockholm address of the Rockridge Brothers and get an added international twist. Substituting gang vocals for the high & lonesome (think other Brothers act the Wacos), the Swedish quartet tears into the likes of "Cripple Creek" and "Sugar Hill" at down-the-mountain speed.—Rick Cornell
