About a week and a half ago, we caught local blues act the Filthy 13 over at Coda. The Filthy 13 is a 4 piece outfit features Amaretto Slim on guitar and vocals backed up by bass, drums and harp. The sound is very fuzz heavy, deep blues sound. Slim’s voice is dark and gravely reminiscent of Howlin’ Wolf. His guitar style is part delta, part Texas.
Generally wielding any number of Stratocasters, he keeps things lively with his macabre humor and banter. The rest of the band fills out the tunes with great energy and crisp punchy sound. These guys should be on your short list of blues acts around KC to catch.
