Howlin’ Rain: July 28, 2018 Union Pool

August 16, 2018

July sure felt like the month of Howlin’ Rain: I caught them twice at Brooklyn Bowl opening for Grateful Shred, and then a couple weeks later this headlining set at Union Pool. Whew! But what a tour finale we have here. The guys sharpened their axes in the two weeks they toured between Brooklyn appearances and it shows. Dig this bawling rendition of “The Wild Boys”—which we hadn’t heard at Brooklyn Bowl—and an extra jammy “Death Prayer.” More Rain! More Rain!
