Forecastle Preview: The Detroit Cobras

The Detroit Cobras are playing this year’s Forecastle. Described as having “Patsy Clines pipes and [a] Courtney Loves attitude”, The Detroit Cobras play 60’s sounding soul with a garage rock style. Of course there is a reason for that first part…none of their songs are original as they are a cover band. Don’t shy away from them for that reason though, because just as Me First & the Gimme Gimmes are exclusively a cover band, The Detroit Cobras take each of these tracks and make it entirely their own. I believe that these girls are going to fit perfectly into the space between jam bands and the indie rock groups and if you can get over seeing slightly older women rocking out, you’re likely to really enjoy the tune and perhaps discover some oldies you might want to check out.

Watch for Meg White as Little Red Riding Hood in the video below…
