ROCK | Haggard


Damn, if this ain't an honest to badness real, rock 'n' roll band. With a peppermint twist and a laconic pitch, this Philadelphia band delivers the cut for your strut, the dance to lose your pants. I love it. There's a hint-o-soul in there like The Reigning Sound with a beautiful hesitation that the band's mid-tempo psychedelic Americana can't hide. You won't be able to either. Deep, dark, and rockin'.

Haggard plays with Guntrouble, The Shandeliers, and Roger Kuhn, on Friday, April 3, at the Bug Jar, 219 Monroe Avenue. 8 p.m. $8.;
