Flier of the Week: Filthy Still

Providence, Rhode Island, combo Filthy Still plays a messy, busy, thoroughly enjoyable mix of punk, bluegrass, and country rock -- and this busy, crazy flier courtesy of Evil Donkey reflects the manic energy the crew brings to its music. A quick look might fool you into thinking you're in for a metal show -- but rifles, crows, skulls, clocks, and a deer trophy mounted on the wall are indeed Americana standards. Can the band live up to this flier? Can they work in some terrifying guns and deer hides?

Filthy Still, we hope you accept the challenge.

Luckily, they have Adam Lee Cogswell and Peculiar Pretzelmen to help them achieve that grand feat.

The craziness will begin at 9 p.m. on Saturday at Tempe Tavern, which gives them enough time to round up all those odd items and gives you enough time to get ready to go out for the night.

This doesn't seem like one you should miss -- You'll be sorry you weren't there if they actually end up working crows and deer into their show.
