Our exclusive Mus-o-meter registers Boom Chick

It’s a guy on slide guitar, and an inexperienced girl on drums, playing the Delta blues. The comparison to the White Stripes is inevitable, but to really get a sense of what the Red Hook-based Boom Chick is all about, we leave that up to the math of the Mus-o-meter (and catch them at Trash Bar on Sunday).

Take the roaring, frenetic guitar of T-Rex’s “20th Century Boy” from the 1973 album “Tanx.” Then add …

The swinging dirty Delta blues of “The Originator” on Bo Diddley’s self-titled 1957 album. Then add …

The spooky Mississippi blues of Johnny Lee Hooker from “Boom Boom.” The sum?

Boom Chick’s debut album, “Show Pony.”

So proud of my niece for venturing into new directions. Wish I lived closer to be able to hear them in person.
