Staff pick: Cadaver Dogs ready for the vinyl release of Too Much

Staff Writer

Despite writing and recording as a duo, singer/guitarist Mat Franklin and drummer Lex Vegas somehow deliver on the promise of the title, bashing through sloppy, glam-infested blues-rock cuts that are too loud, too rowdy and too disorderly — in other words, ideal Cadaver Dogs tunes. The road warriors haven’t performed locally often in recent months, owing largely to a travel schedule that borders on reckless (the two-piece played more than 200 shows last year), so they should be extra amped for this homecoming gig, which will double as a release show for the limited-edition vinyl pressing of their latest.
