Music in the HART – Week 2 – The Black-eyed Snake

This Thursday The Black-eyed Snakes will be playing for Music in the HART concert series. Stop down to Lake Place Park Thursday 8/9 from 4:30pm – 6:30pm. Each week will feature a different band. For the full list please check out the schedule HERE. All shows are free, family-friendly, and open to the public.

Nothing quite compares to watching a Mormon nicknamed “Chicken Bone George” stoke an audience of heathens into a pulsating frenzy … while the artist is mostly sitting down. The normally calculated and mild-mannered George Alan Sparhawk of Low fame screams distorted gospel commands when leading longtime side-project the Black-eyed Snakes. Meanwhile, “Big House” Bobby Olson’s guitar cranks out heavy-metal blues while the space is filled by the twin skins of drummer Brad Nelson and percussionist Bryan “Lefty” Johnson. The band’s third album — the first since 2003’s Rise Up! — is in the works.
