Over countless bands and incarnations over the years, it seems as if Dax Riggs (Acid Bath, Deadboy and the Elephantmen) has reached the height of his powers. His 2010 record Say Goodnight to the World is a narcotic platter of razor-sharp glamdust, with lurching, fuzz-rock interpolations of the blues underpinning Riggs' fearsome baritone. He's captured a perfect blend of classic rock, metal sludge, gallows blues, and noir-goth Americana, resulting the kind of record that Jack White would trade in his entire wardrobe of antique clothes to make. What's more, Riggs' weathered voice is the kind of instrument that only deepens with time, meaning that he's bound to keep making spooky, craggy, craftily seductive records for years to come. Mark Lanegan fans—you might very well have a better time tonight at this show. NED LANNAMANN
