AMERICANA | Amigo The Devil

by

comment

Amigo The Devil is a breath of fresh air for both the social misfits and the straight-laced. Whoever is in the crowd, you can guarantee lots of whiskey, debauchery, and drunken singalongs. The tattooed burly man behind the project, Danny Kiranos, writes songs for the doomed. With morbid slapstick lyrics of love and death, a mischievous raspy voice, and haunting but catchy banjo licks, his music falls into its own gothic sub-genre of Murderfolk. Amigo's body of work consists of three EPs: "Manimals," "Diggers," and "Decompositions." All of which were self-funded and promoted solely by word of mouth. The DIY approach is seemingly working for this singer-songwriter; his rabid cult following is ever-growing.

Amigo The Devil plays with Ghost Bath, Reps, Shepard of Rot, and Sustruga on Thursday, March 9, at Flour City Station, 170 East Avenue. 8 p.m. $12-$15. amigothedevil.com; flourcitystation.com.
