Wino: Why Yes

Scott “Wino” Weinrich, legendary guitarist, singer and principal figure behind such bands as The Obsessed, Saint Vitus (catch them on tour with Crowbar and Helmet in March), Spirit Caravan, The Hidden Hand, Shrinebuilder, his own Wino band and the new Premonition project, hits Mercury Lounge in Manhattan this Saturday, Feb. 12, for an intimate show supporting his first ever acoustic solo album, Adrift. I don’t care if it’s your wife’s 30th birthday and she couldn’t be bothered with any of this stuff, you need to see Wino. All the more so because he’s touring with his friend and Shrinebuilder bandmate, Scott Kelly (also of Neurosis) and Brooklyn outfit Man’s Gin are opening. Bound to be one of the best nights of the year.
