There are Rock legends and then there are Underground Rock legends – musicians who aren’t known well beyond their support base, but whose core followers believe they represent everything good and exciting about the spirit and energy of Rock & Roll.
One of the greatest examples ever of an Underground Rock legend, Memphis’ Tav Falco, is coming to MOTR Pub for a free show with his primal Panther Burns band.
His music, like The Cramps’, comes out of the “Psychobilly” or “art damage” tradition of taking what was learned from Punk and applying it to a reinterpretation/deconstruction of Rockabilly, Blues and gothic Folk, with some unusual surprises thrown in.
Tav Falco plays 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 4 with Panther Burns at MOTR Pub. Free. motrpub.com.
