J Roddy Walston and the Business/Post Animal

When: Sat., Feb. 3, 9 p.m. 2018

In the tradition of guys like Jerry Lee Lewis and Fats Domino, J. Roddy Walston doesn’t just play the piano. He bangs away on the keys like a man possessed. His raw garage rock tunes that have the same kind of swagger you hear in tunes by Kings of Leon and the Black Keys. So how the hell did Walston learn to play the piano? His grandmother was a gospel/honky tonk country piano player who taught him the tricks of the trade. Walston, who insists he'll never play keyboards, tours with a piano and puts on a helluva show. He comes to town tonight in support of last year's Destroyers of the Soft Life, an album of urgent indie rock tunes that veers from Nirvana-like punk ("You Know Me Better") to fervent drinking ballads ("Blade of Truth").
