BET Dex_Romweber_Duo_StanLewis_2014

The Dex Romweber Duo is “a creepy doll collection of surf, proto-rockabilly, garage, dark and vengeful blues, and nobody but nobody plays it like Dex,” according to a press release. Romweber, formerly of Flat Duo Jets, plays guitar while his “whip-wristed” sister, Sara Romweber (formerly of Let’s Active) finesses the drums. Together, they make music that is “effortlessly versatile and raucously dismissive of genre constraints, exciting and darkly romantic.” Jack White (White Stripes) says the group “is one of the best-kept secrets of the rock ‘n’ roll underground.” The sibling duo takes the stage at The Grey Eagle on Friday, May 9, at 9 p.m. The Zealots also perform. $10/$12.
