After repeatedly packing the Red Herring Lounge during his January residency, Charlie Parr hit the road. Various stops in the Midwest and West Coast — and a two-week stint in Australia — precede his return to Duluth, where he joins up with his three-piece side project. Devil’s Flying Machine plays music for car crashes — or, as drummer David Frankenfeld puts it, “damaged country blues, experimental meanderings, lost reckonings, haunted revivals and trains appropriately off track, all in an effort to make things right again.” Fans stomp, howl and sway to Parr’s raspy gospel-esque scorching blues while Christian McShane’s guitar reverberates through the room. The band recently recorded “Quinn the Eskimo” for the upcoming Bringing it all Back to Duluth Does Dylan compilation.
