Now that Jack White has freed up his Raconteurs/Dead Weather bandmates Jack Lawrence and Patrick Keeler for the moment, they were both able to hook back up with Craig Fox and return to the Cincinnati garage-rock roots of the Greenhornes, releasing **** (it's pronounced Four Stars), their first new full-length album in eight years. Their lively new numbers are all drenched in catchy hooks and unshakable melodies, and everyone involved sounds inspired and reinvigorated on this rousing batch of new songs, which should make for quite a boisterous performance. These old friends clearly know how to have a rocking good time on stage together, and their taut, high-spirited live shows have long been missed around the Twin Cities for quite some time now. With Hacienda. 18+.
