The fuzzed-out, throwback blues sounds of Low’s Alan Sparhawk and the other Black-Eyed Snakes fits perfectly into speakers and overall vibe at the Hook & Ladder’s small club space—then again so does the ’60s piano rockabilly style of The Claudettes who will visit from Chicago to get us all hyped for the upcoming Roots, Rock & Deep Blues Festival. Friday, April 26th, 8:30 PM. $15.Tandi Olsen-Thielen
