Louisville Legends in Leather

A hair-bandish name like Wax Fang might make you think of Mötley Crüe or Def Leppard, but this Kentucky band lets loose with a hard-to-place sound that [Spin.com] says “alternates between punk-rock rage and thumping bass and vocal sensitivity akin to Cat Stevens or Jim Crocie.” Punk-rock and sensitive? That’s a hot claim, but how can potential fans decide for themselves? One method would be to stop by Wax Fang’s [MySpace page](www.myspace.com/waxfang) and listen to a few tracks, but an even better way would be to see the band live at LES’ Mercury Lounge, where they’ll be sensitively punk-rocking out tonight, or tomorrow night at Union Pool in Williamsburg. (Sorry, three other boroughs, better hop on that train or ferry.)

[The Mercury Lounge] on Wednesday, June 6th at 9:30 p.m., $10.
[Union Pool](http://www.myspace.com/unionpool) on Thursday, June 7th at 11 p.m., $7, 21+.
