Guitar Wolf at Marquis Theater, 10/6/13

GUITAR WOLF @ MARQUIS THEATER | 10/06/13 After Bass Wolf more or less stumbled into place and Drum Wolf sat down behind the kit, Guitar Wolf himself strode on stage and smashed down any unnecessary walls between punk, garage rock, noise rock, R&B, the blues, soul and rockabilly song after song. If the guys operated from a set list, it hardly mattered, as every song was played in all but immediate succession and each sounded decidedly different yet kindred just the same, amped up and borderline demented.
