Best Bets: Blitzen Trapper plays The Rex
You’re probably wondering what “Rocky Mountain Whoop-Ass” entails.
Paste magazine says the album is the Portland-born band’s most “consistent and cohesive” and says it “stretches out more with some head-banging rowdiness, shameless hickishness and elements that wouldn’t seem to belong sliding smoothly into place.”
Blitzen Trapper has had an ever-evolving sound during its decade in the biz. Front man Eric Early recently told the Lincoln Journal Star: “I’m always writing, and if you’re always writing things are going to change. You’re going to try things out. And that’s going to make its way into the music.”
Expect to hear songs from the band’s decade-plus in the biz during its Friday show at The Rex.
