TODAY benefit show for the Military Counseling Network/The Clearing Barrel

29.10.14 20h
The Austin-based duo reminds many of The White Stripes, but perhaps only in energy, gender and eccentricity. Their charming-mysterious style is uniquely their own, musically and visually. They are clearly influenced by The Cramps or The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. With nothing but a four-piece drum kit and an electric guitar, Carley and Jonny create huge sound.

Carley and Jonathan Wolf named themselves The Ghost Wolves as a symbol of the band’s ferocious, primal sound and a nod to Carley’s ranch upbringing among hybrid wolves. The married duo is inspired by delta blues, loud garage rock, and American roots music- a genre they call "stomp and roll". Their new LP "Man, Woman, Beast" was released on Nashville's Plowboy Records in May 2014.

The Ghost Wolves are known for their infectious on-stage chemistry and raw energy, presenting "face-melting riffs and unfettered noisy productions" (Austin Independent Music) to live crowds across the US with more than 500 shows to date.

Their garage swamp stretches beyond just the US, garnering international attention. Rolling Stone Italia raves "They play stomping blues-garage-punk possessed by who knows what kind of demon... their music has just the right overdose of voodoo punk..."
