Oregon’s Roselit Bone
is not messing around. Self-described as “knife-fight music,” the crazy country band sounds like something that would accompany a Quentin Tarantino character stranded in the Texas desert and Hell bent on revenge. The band’s latest album, Blacken & Curl, is a stunning and gothic western manifesto of rumbling rhythms and thunderous guitars. Between the ominous pedal steels and forlorn lyrics, Roselit Bone are authentically Americana in all the best ways, and they throw down with fellow Oregonian Will Stenberg and local boy John Courage on Thursday, May 28, at the Arlene Francis Center, 99 Sixth St, Santa Rosa. 8pm. 707.528.3009.
