Seattle trio Naked Giants have only been around for a few years, releasing a debut EP called R.I.P. in 2016 that sounded like a 1970s blues rock band recorded by a 1990s grunge producer on a 2018 home computer. Like so many rising bands in their early 20s, they earned a lot of cred by playing three consecutive SXSW festivals, launching their names into countless tastemaker blogs that, for the most part, had kind words to say about the band’s blue collar radio-friendly rock. They have a new full length, Sluff, a collaboration with Seattle sound vet Steve Fisk (Nirvana, Screaming Trees) that was just road tested on a European tour with Seattle neighbors Car Seat Headrest. Having just filmed an appearance on the venerated TV show Austin City Limits, a U.S. headline tour brings them to the Casbah on March 6. Judging from performance clips online, you can expect dual vocalists Grant Mullen and Gianni Aiello to regulate the mosh pit from the stage by offering attendees a periodic “safe place” in which to flee the mayhem and power down for a song or two. The bill includes a relatively new Boston-turned-Nashville acid pop rock band known as Twen.
