Royal Pines

After several years working out of Ohio with beloved groups like The Hairy Patt Band and Them Wranch, Joe Patt relocated to Chicago at the turn of the century. After a few years drumming with a local Soul outfit, in 2005 Patt returned to the slightly twisted, swampy Indie Rock of his earliest years, forming Royal Pines (for which he sings, writes and plays guitar). Like early Meat Puppets, the Pines’ latest release, this year’s Three Sheets, finds the sweet spot between noisy Post Punk, twangy Roots and raw Psychedelia. The strength of the new album has helped the band garner continued attention outside of the U.S.; the U.K.’s Mojo magazine recently gave the album four (out of four) stars in a review that declared the album a perfect fit for “fans of early ’90s pop-savvy bludgeon from the Touch & Go and Amphetamine Reptile labels.” 


With The Darkhearts. 9 p.m. Saturday. $5; $6 day of show. Southgate House Revival, 111 E. Sixth Street, Newport, Ky., southgatehouse.com.
