PUNK | Goddamn Gallows


I love coming up with new, mixed-up, mashed-up ways to describe a band's sound like, say, "hobobilly." Now I didn't come up with this one, the band did, but it's fairly accurate when describing the uber-transient, forever transplanted road dogs in Goddamn Gallows. This band comes on like a hobo camp overrun with rabies (that one's mine). There's accelerated 2/4 beat, out of control shuffles, and a touch of Celtic calamity a la Flogging Molly. The sound is loud, fast, and often squealing on two wheels as it navigates the hairpin madness and breakneck time signatures. This is gonna be a shit ton of unbridled fun.

Goddamn Gallows plays with Black List Royals on Sunday, September 13, at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 9 p.m. $10-$12.;
