The former Deadboy & the Elephantmen dude hits town in support of his second solo disc, Say Goodnight to the World, which came out last week. As he did on 2007’s We Sing of Only Blood or Love, Riggs lays on the creepy goth-blues shtick a bit thick(see “You Were Born to Be My Gallows” and “Gravedirt on My Blue Suede Shoes”). As gimmicks go, though, his is a juicy one. With Motel Motel.
