Clutch puts a tight grip on the State Theatre

Share on Nextdoor

Few bands to emerge during the grunge era meld bluesy funk and Sabbathian metal as successfully — or have lasted as long — as Maryland's Clutch. The band's music is heavy enough to inspire head-banging yet sufficiently melodic, occasionally in a thick boogie manner, for ass-shaking. The songs marked by deep-voiced frontman Neil Fallon's fierce harmonica have a rowdy juke-joint feel, and when Mike Schauer leans on the organ it sounds like the band's channeling late-1960s psychedelic rock. Over the years, Clutch has flirted with Top 40 success, with several of its singles landing on Modern Rock radio, including last year's Delta stomp "Electric Worry."

Clutch w/Kamchatka/Lionize, 7 p.m. (doors), Thurs., April 24, State Theatre, St. Petersburg, $21 (advance), $23 (at the door).
