This one's flying a bit under the radar, unjustly so: The almighty Dex Romweber Duo is performing at the Fox Hole at Atomic Cowboy tomorrow night, making good on drummer Sara Romweber's July 2008 promise that they'd come back. Bob Reuter's Alley Ghost, the Dirt Daubers and Whistle Pig are also performing.
Romweber was one-half of '80s favorites the Flat Duo Jets. Recently, he landed on Bloodshot Records, which released this year's Ruins of Berlin., an album with guest appearances from Neko Case, Exene Cervenka and Cat Power. As for the Duo's live show, like I said last year:
The Dex Romweber duo specializes in music plucked with the soul and faith of a Sunday morning revival, a fluid mix of blues, surf-rock, rockabilly, proto-rock & roll and garage.
