Music Day 4: Dexter Romweber Duo

Former Flat Duo Jets frontman Dexter Romweber has the most played-to-hell guitar I've ever seen. The finish is worn off of practically every edge on the instrument, and the paint is bubbling up on the face from presumably countless hours of playing. It's no surprise, because Romweber is a fiend on the guitar, recalling the glory days of giants like Gene Vincent, Dick Dale, and '60s border radio. Backed by his sister Sara Romweber (Let's Active) flat-out swingin' on drums, Romweber (in his own guitar-playing world, his back often to the crowd) delivered a solid set of soul-influenced ballads and guitar raveups.
