Lonely Horse

If it seems that we have spilled a great deal of ink on local desert-rock dynamo Lonely Horse, that’s because we have. And, with damn good reason. The former duo, now turned trio, is led by Nick Long with his singular energy, his heart on his sleeve, and his preternatural gift for blues-influenced guitar demolition. Long’s stage presence is absolutely, jarringly engaging. But, importantly, his ability to turn his sonic ideas and musical gifts into excellent songs that become excellent recordings is uncanny and uncommon, to say the least. Lonely Horse will be joined on this big time rock and roll bill by local trio Verisimilitude, a young instrumental band that makes heavy and multi-layered psychedelic garage rock. If you are among the uninitiated with either of these two fine acts, we recommend you educate yourself at lonely-horse.bandcamp.com and v-tude.bandcamp.com respectively. Free, 10:00pm, Lowcountry, 318 Martinez St, (210) 560-2224, lowcountrysa.com. — JC
