Playing a bit of the rock & roll since the 5th grade is bound to get you somewhere. Now hitting somewhere in their late 20’s and early 30’s, the boys of the gritty guitar driven, Dylan-vocal-inflected tunes of The Walkmen are now waltzing their way through the United States and Canada in support of their newest release “A Hundred Miles Off”. Touted as a “sonic carnival”, their third album goes beyond “The Rat”, and gets a bit quieter, a bit darker, a bit of a smaller monster than “Bows + Arrows” and the band sound ever the better for it. Gracing the stage at the Phoenix (410 Sherbourne) tomorrow night, the show is not to be missed.
