Heartless Bastards at the Canal Club

Sunday, July 11


Led by front woman Erika Wennerstrom, the Heartless Bastards are hardly without feeling. Often it's the kind that seethes, aches and has a chip on its shoulder. Recently transplanted to Austin, Texas, from its established home in Cincinnati, the roots-rock garage outfit has hit a new plateau with its latest CD, “The Mountain.” It has a straightforward, no-nonsense rock sound, featuring tight rhythms, a loose attitude and Wennerstrom's liquor-swilling vocals. Here, band members find some cleansing satisfaction in rubbing a little dirt in their music. The Heartless Bastards perform at the Canal Club on Sunday, July 11, at 7 p.m. $12-$15. 643-2582.
