Dexter Romweber and sister Sara don’t make it West very often, so it’s a real treat to report that they will be doing two shows this week in Los Angeles to promote their 2nd album together as the Dex Romweber Duo titled, Is That You In The Blue? (available now via Bloodshot Records).
If surf guitar, blues, and possessed vocals mated, this is exactly the kind of record you would get; one you can place on the turntable and keep flipping over and over as the day is long. Dexter who has been hailed a hero of the underground scene since the late 1980s continues to stay true to his roots, bringing what I can only describe as “Americana on speed” with Sara providing the tempo to his oh!-the-reverb guitar licks.
Do yourself a favour, take advantage of the fact they are in town and head out Thursday night to The Whisky-a-go-go and Friday night to The Redwood Bar. Tickets for both shows available at the door and you can also purchase your Whisky-a-go-go show tickets ahead of time via Ticketweb.
