Daddy Long Legs to Stomp in Hudson and Beacon

Raw-as-dirt Brooklyn blues punk trio Daddy Long Legs have rocked the Hudson Valley before, but it’s been a few years. And since then the band has been blowing up like crazy, unleashing a wild live album, Daddy Long Legs Rides Tonight, on the consistently cool Norton label this month and tearing up Europe and the UK with their winning brand of wailing, roots-gone-wrong garage trash. And this weekend, at long last, the crew of hot-wired turnstile hoppers makes their Upstate return to scorch the Half Moon in Hudson on Friday and Quinn’s in Beacon on Saturday.

Formed in 2010, Daddy Long Legs took their moniker from the nickname of harp-blowing front man Brian Hurd, who started the band as a duo with guitarist Murat Akturk. Drummer and New York scenemaker Josh Styles soon brought his minimal beat to the party and the group cut two ace albums for Norton amid touring with the John Spencer Blues Explosion.

Here’s the band kicking ass at Union Pool in Brooklyn earlier this year:

Daddy Long Legs will perform with the Schoemer Formation at the Half Moon in Hudson on May 29 at 9pm. Admission is $5. For more information, call (518) 828-1562 or visit http://thehalfmoonhudson.com/.

Daddy Long Longs will perform at Quinn’s in Beacon with Ben Collier at 8pm. A $10 donation is suggested. For more information, call (845) 202-7447 or visit https://www.facebook.com/QuinnsBeacon/info?tab=overview.
