Local Love: Ghengis Green

Ghengis Green is playing tonight's installment of the Outer Sounds concert series at Oldfield's on High. They also pared down to a trio to record with James Allison at Hilliard's EP Studios for the second Outer Sounds session, now available for your streaming pleasure. (Recall that Couch Forts one a couple weeks back?)

I'm digging "Jaundice," which exudes a definite Black Keys vibe. Usually, with their keyboard player in tow, the group builds atmospheric space-rock sounds around a classic rock core. But here they make the most of the minimized instrumentation.

They play Oldfield's tonight with The Partisan Press, Black Horse Wind and DJ Lyno. It starts at 9:30 and it's free.
