Dax Riggs (born 15 October 1973 in Evansville, Indiana, United States) is an independently-signed singer/songwriter. His diverse musical style encompasses heavy metal, psychedelic rock, blues rock, and post-punk. His distinct lyrical style is characterized by a consumption by darkness, Satanic visions, druggy hallucinations, melancholy, morbid imagery, and a fascination with death in specific, all in an impassioned, raspy baritone that can be largely characterized as nocturnally beautiful in feeling.

Ages 21+

Dax Riggs first made a name for himself fronting sludge-metal band Acid Bath. From his teenage thrash years through the swamp-balladry/blues-metal of Agents of Oblivion into the present, Riggs’ preferred genres expand and evolve. The one thing that remains the same is Riggs himself, who tempers a sharp intellect with real chops, dark imagination and morbid humor. Riggs rocks Sister (407 Central NW) on Sunday, June 8, after the opener, a collaboration between local heavies Steve Hammond, Jessica Billey and Bud Melvin. Notably of Leeches of Lore, Tenderizor and Phantom Lake, this threesome is worthy of your time and $10. Add in Riggs’ performance, and I can’t see why you’d miss this. The 21-plus show starts at 8pm.
