Roots

An Evening with Scott Biram

When: Thu., Dec. 11, 9 p.m. 2014

Scott H. Biram the sort of guy who welcomes both the metal crowds and the country folk to his First Church of Ultimate Fanaticism. He's also the guy who broke nearly every bone in his body in a head-on crash with an 18-wheeler at 75 mph and played his usual blistering live set while confined to a wheelchair and on an IV barely a month later. His newest and ninth full-length album, Nothin' But Blood, portrays Biram either emerging from or collapsing back into a menacing red river, which befits both his Austin roots and his knack for clashing together the spiritual and the sacrilegious with unpredictable dexterity. It's an album that finds him shouting, "Only whiskey can sleep in my bed" in his grizzled punk growl, delivering songs with titles like "Alcohol Blues" and "I'm Troubled" and putting new spins on "Back Door Man", "John the Revelator" and "Amazing Grace.” - Justin Wesley
