The Deadstring Brothers play Rockford’s Kryptonite Nov. 7

Staff Report

Detroit band The Deadstring Brothers bring their alt-country/rock to Rockford’s Kryptonite, 308 W. State St., at 9 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 7.

Sexy, low-slung and soulful, balancing barroom sneer with near-blistering emotional heat in a way that evokes the best of the brothers Allman and Flying Burrito,” the New Orleans Gambit Weekly wrote of the band.

Earning comparisons to the Rolling Stones circa Exile on Main Street, Deadstring Brothers are Detroit incarnate. A little rough and tumble, they’re roots rock drawing from Muscle Shoals, soul and blues in one fell swoop.
