City Slang: Cobras at the Stick

The Detroit Cobras will play the Magic Stick on Saturday, June 1 in support of the Tied & True album on Bloodshot Records (which is weird, because that album came out in 2007, but that's what the label is saying).

According to a press release, “When we come into this world, some of us get tapped on the head by God, the Grand Poobah, Mother Nature, or who/whatever and are granted extraordinary gifts; there is no question that Detroit Cobras’ singer Rachel Nagy rolled snake eyes at the Grand Casino in the Sky.
“Rachel started out by belting revved-up rock yowlers and has grown into the gen-u-ine gutsy, vulnerable, delicate and commanding soul-on-the-edge singer. She effortlessly glides from R&B sass, to girl group pathos to kitten-with-a-whip toughness with a snap of her chipped fingernails. Longtime musical partner in crime, guitarist Mary Ramirez keeps the DE-troit Motor City in the Cobras with her body shop wallop, greasy rock ‘n soul rhythms and a bold grasp of old school, big room arrangements.”

Show time is 9 p.m. and cover is $15. This is an all-ages show. The bill also features Pangea, Justin Walker & the Crossguards, and Chains of Love.
