The Goddamn Gallows, Calamity Cubes

BRANDON WIDDER

Dante's
350 W Burnside St.
 
[GYPSY PUNK] It’s tough to decipher whether the Goddamn Gallows’ Mikey Classic is being honest or ironic when he spouts off the phrase “Ya’ll motherfuckers need Jesus” over a flurry of distorted guitar and plucking banjo on the band’s latest album, Seven Devils. It’s a telling line from the rootsy band of Motor City heathens with seemingly no qualms about cobbling together old-timey bluegrass, carnivalesque folk and lo-fi rockabilly. Accordion-seared cuts like “47 Crosses” and the instrumental “Instant Major Felony” shine with grime, while the cover of Townes Van Zandt’s “Waiting Around to Die” sounds more sincere than the original ever could. If rock’n’roll is the devil’s music, the Gallows are a whole other breed of mean.
