Dex Romweber at the Basement 

Casual Dex

Casual Dex
For two relentlessly prolific artists like psychobilly headmaster Dex Romweber—the man behind '90s punk/blues/roots rock mash-up artists Flat Duo Jets—and anti-folk originator Paleface, their influence in underground rock is far more tangible than the music itself. Whether it's providing the template for Jack White's garage blues or blazing a trail for chanteuses Cat Power and Neko Case (as the former has done), or lending lo-fi psych-folk musings to early Beck and swaying the likes of the Moldy Peaches and Langhorne Slim (like the latter), both artists' are well overdue for recognition. With Dex supporting his latest studio effort Ruins of Berlin and Paleface touring in support of The Show Is on the Road, these two proto-punk folkies may finally find that appreciative audience that has so long eluded them. Nashville’s own bizarro rockers The Mattoid are scheduled to open.
