Dax Riggs

Details

With the Bourgeois Gospels, 8 p.m.Friday, August 6, at Walter's on Washington, 4215 Washington, 713-862-2513, www.4215washington.com or www.pegstar.net.
It's been almost three whole years since Dax Riggs released a proper follow-up to 2007's We Sing of Only Blood or Love, but next week Riggs comes back in full with Say Goodnight to the World. This album is an entirely louder and more menacing affair than Love — if that's at all possible — echoing Roy Orbison, the Stooges, Julian Cope and Deep Purple at various turns. Also in those three years, Riggs has firmly planted himself in the Austin area and begun touring almost incessantly with bands like Queens of the Stone Age. His past few Houston shows have been sold-out affairs leading up to bigger and bigger rooms. Additionally, Riggs's varied musical background in previous projects Acid Bath and Deadboy & the Elephantmen brings in diverse crowds and nurtures newfound devotees.
