As Randy Joe Duke, leader of Indianapolis rockers Direwolf puts it, “One of the best compliments we ever got from one of our fans about our music was that we had cured his relationship problems with his wife.” He explains, “He said he and his wife had been seeing counselors over the last several months hoping to rekindle their lost flame to no avail, but after coming to a [Direwolf] show and getting caught up in our energy, they had already snuck out to the parking lot twice to have sex in their car. You can’t get a better rock ‘n’ roll endorsement than that!”
An organic, homespun outfit from the eastside, Direwolf has been cranking out chunky, bad-to-the-bone rock for well over a decade. Although their appearances have been sporadic over the past few years, they will perform a gig at Zanies Too Saturday, October 20. Expect lots of familiar songs people regularly copulate to, including “Raven,” “Josephine” and “Cats and Dogs.”
The concert will also include Atlanta boogiemen Blackberry Smoke. All you need to know is the Black Crowes’ Chris Robinson named this band, and they’re are currently getting rave reviews across the country while opening for ZZ Top. Their southern rock sound grows out of Marshall Tucker and of course, the Allman’s linage. The two bands will definitely put on one of the better shows you’ll likely see this season.
