Best Local Album

The Dirty Hooks’ debut CD, Electric Grit, possesses both high voltage and gravelly authenticity. The sexy, intertwined boy-girl vocals of front man Bobby McCall and drummer Jenine Cali are awesome by themselves. But add McCall’s ferocious guitar riffs and Tony Ratto’s whiplash bass, and we’re talking magic. Juke-joint-raising tunes such as “Moonshine Hustle” and “Kerosene Fire” are how you do bluesy rock ’n’ roll right. If you’re a fan of anything like the Black Keys, then this disc will snag and drag you by the gills—hard.
