If blues rock is having a moment in Seattle, it's in no small part thanks to Saskatchewan native Jordan Cook—stage name Reignwolf—who moved down here last December and instantly caused a stir with his wildly impressive guitar chops. Reignwolf's gift is in his combination of the fierce young spirit of rock-and-roll and the soulful old spirit of the blues. Cook loves the city—earlier this year, he told SW's Todd Hamm, "It's definitely where a musician wants to be... even the weather here being up and down, it makes you feel moods like crazy, and makes you want to play music."—and the city loves him. His Phil Ek-produced EP is hotly anticipated—a recent video clip shows him in the studio bending his guitar strings to create a sound like a giant zipper being undone—and he's currently on a much-hullabalooed nationwide tour. He'll be ably supported tonight by the raucous garage duo The Grizzled Mighty. With The Young Evils. ERIN K. THOMPSON
