Local Love: Silo the Huskie

Artist: Silo the Huskie Song: "5th of July"

As explained in today's paper, Columbus indie rock OGs Silo the Huskie will reunite for Saturday's annual Madlab Theatre fundraiser, Volatility. What's more, the twang-friendly rockers will be continuing as a functional unit after Saturday's show and working on new material. Don't expect to hear anything but Silo staples Saturday, though. For a hint of what to expect, the band's final ComFest set is streaming at MySpace, including opening number "5th of July," a blazing country-punk tune in the vein of early Uncle Tupelo.

Other acts on the Volatility bill include The Receiver, Hotel Eden, Deerhead and another reunited bunch of old-school indie rockers, Captain Exploder.
