Nervous Ticks

When: Sat., Aug. 18, 9 p.m. 2012

Richmond, Va., trio the Nervous Ticks is an unstable outfit, not only because it comprises two consistent members and a rotation of drummers. The band's volatility is also pronounced in its breakneck blues-rock, a speed-freak rush of Mark Sultan stomp and Hasil Adkins' primitive rockabilly. There are plenty of rock 'n' roll bands joining that sound to wild hollers and caveman pounding, but few do so with the reckless abandon of the Ticks. Sandwiched between the pop eccentricity of The Infamous Sugar and retro-garage upstarts The Piedmonstmen, this is all but guaranteed to be a wild night. —Bryan C. Reed
