The Detroit Cobras, Pangea

MARTIN CIZMAR
9:30 pm, Tuesday May 21 | $13.
Dante's
350 W Burnside St.
 

[ARCHIVAL R&B] Live shows by the Detroit Cobras are the mildest of letdowns. Based on the Cobras\' delightfully scuzzy recorded versions of semi-obscure soul and R&B tracks from the ’60s, you\'d expect to be twisting and/or shouting as though seeing Otis Day at a Faber College frat party. The songs are the same—highlights include \"You Don\'t Knock,\" \"Midnight Blues,\" and \"I\'ll Keep Holding On\"—but the touring versions of the group I\'ve seen (seven or eight of them, at least) aren\'t nearly as tight as the stone-cold killers singer Rachel Nagy and bassist Gina Rodriguez bring into the studio. You will be goaded to put the bartenders to use, which helps with that.
