There's a video floating around of ex-Gories, ex-Demolition Doll Rods member Danny Kroha beautifully and sloppily covering Link Wray's "Black Widow," and well, that's good enough for me. But obviously there's more, like when Kroha takes a seat with a guitar, or a banjo, or a lap steel or a diddley bow — and resurrects the wailin' folk blues in the spirit of the lo-fi projects he's been involved in as well as the ghosts of legends like Son House, Blind Lemon Jefferson, and just about anyone on the Fat Possum Label. Kroha's new record, "Angels Watching Over Me," was recorded in a vacant house in Detroit and is now out on Third Man Records which means he's gotten the thumbs-up from Mr. White. Bring your thumbs to this show. Leave your head at home.
Danny Kroha plays Thursday, April 30, at Abilene Bar & Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 8:30 p.m. $6-$8. abilenebarandlounge.com.
