It Might Get Loud

August 12th, 2010

Dax Riggs, out of Austin, Texas, has been a professional musician for quite some time—first in the sludge-metal Acid Bath and then, among others, Agents of Oblivion and Deadboy & the Elephantmen. But he began putting out his own music three years ago, and his third solo album, Say Goodnight to the World, came out last week. Although his songs can often contain brooding or subdued lyrics, it’s clear that Riggs likes his metal (and some cool covers). While it’s not all intensity all the time, to be sure, he can bring it. Find out just how much when Dax Riggs (above, playing “Night Is the Notion” for SPINhouse Live), along with Motel Motel, comes to Mercury Lounge for the late show on Saturday and another one on Sunday.
