INDIE FOLK | Amigo The Devil


Mixing heavy metal concepts and traditional folk instrumentation, Danny Kiranos's solo project Amigo The Devil has been surprising audiences with genre-bending brutality since its debut release in 2010. Amigo The Devil paints dark pictures about love with gory imagery and situational irony, wrangling up the essence of Texas country heat in its instrumentation. Kiranos tells heartfelt stories while playing acoustic guitar or finger-pickin' banjo, using a conversational mix of speaking and singing in his candid yet poetically charged lyrics. Think of it as a fresh take on the classic murder ballad.

Amigo The Devil will perform along with Harley Poe on Thursday, November 8, 8 p.m. at Flour City Station, 170 East Avenue. $15-$20. 413-5745.;
