Mark Sultan, The Piedmontsmen

When: Tue., Oct. 30, 8 p.m. 2012

One could fill quite a bit of space simply by listing the bands Mark Sultan has played in, assuming names like the King Khan & BBQ Show or The Spaceshits are implicitly compelling and that their raucous reputations precede them. But there are innumerable budget-rock outfits whose off-the-rails performances begin and end the discussion. Sultan isn't one of those: Led by his arresting, R&B-informed voice, Sultan's music ranges from blistering, no-frills punk to tender soda-shop ballads. His arrangements can veer into dense, noisy textures or rely on the most basic guitar-drums setup. In 50 minutes recorded live and in one take, this year's War on Rock 'n' Roll covers most of that ground. —Bryan C. Reed
