A match made in dirty blues heaven, and a revisiting of a blistering afternoon of music at the annual Roots, Rock & Deep Blues Festival VIII, the fuzzed-out Fort Wayne, IN duo Left Lane Cruiser and our own electric blues band from up-north Black-Eyed Snakes team up for a night of loud and greasy romance. The Hook & Ladder will also have sweet for the first hundred attendees to up the romance factor. Friday, February 14th, 8 PM. $12 advance, $15 day of. —Paul Cajun
