Maryland-based guitarist Scott “Wino” Weinrich is credited as one of the most influential figures in stoner rock and doom metal, having been on the scene for three decades and heading up bands like The Obsessed and Saint Vitus. He’s back with a solo album and a new band, as far as I can tell simply called “Wino,” making its live debut at the 9:30 Club tomorrow evening. It’s an early show – doors at 6, show at 7.
Worth getting there early, too, since Virginia doom metal titans Salome (who are making waves these days, having been picked up for the first installment of Pitchfork’s metal series in NYC, as well as the monstrous Scion Rock Fest in Atlanta) are opening alongside stoner rockers King Giant.
