The White Barons

A Russ Meyer girl on steroids, platinum blond and inked from head to toe, Miss Eva von Slut is a whole lotta woman. In a corset, she's got enough cleavage to bounce a pound of loose change off. And she's got plenty of curves -- dangerous curves, man. So it's a bit surprising to hear the lady sing, because when she belts it out, she sounds like, well, like a dude. She's got an inferno in her pipes that roars like side pipes on a tricked-out Harley, and a growl that would make Danzig's muscles atrophy. Seriously. After fronting the all-girl psychobilly act the Merry Widows (who actually played a gig at San Quentin), she teamed up with a trio of guys to form the White Barons. Catch Eva and her boys this Monday when they ride into 3 Kings Tavern, with labelmates I Walk the Line and Thunder Boys, for the Gearhead Records Roadshow.
