Do You Remember Rock & Roll?

If not, let the Alabama Shakes remind you. They’re selling out shows across the country and their debut album isn’t even out for another couple months. I managed to see these blues-infused soul grabbers play a jam packed show at the Indy in San Francisco last night. Best overpriced scalped ticket I ever bought!

Don’t believe the hype? Are you in Lefsetz’s corner? All due respect to differing musical tastes, but you’d have to be made of stone to hear a song like “Be Mine” and think that this is a band that’s “not ready.” They sound like they were born ready.

Go see the Alabama Shakes, if you can. Pick up their album Boys & Girls when it drops the second week of April. And peep my photos from last night’s show:

      Love Letter from the West Coast

      Oh, hey there, East Coast! Looks like you had a bit of an earthquake, huh? Don’t worry, I’m not gonna razz you about it. You’re ill-equipped for the tremors. A big quake would be way more catastrophic there than it would be here. You’re right to be a little jumpy about it. Well, I’m no [...]

      Did You Hear That: Adele “21″ a brief review

      From the first beat of “Rolling in the Deep,” the first track on Adele’s new album, “21”, it is clear that even at such a young age (all of 22 now), singer/songwriter Adele continues to be a force stronger than she may know. As “21” dips into the style of the country South with a [...]

      So Sayeth Pam: The Raveonettes “Forget That You’re Young”

      I like a young American band that makes vintage-sounding reverbalicious melodies. Specifically if those bands are Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls or Dum Dum Girls. Call me a nationalist but I just happen to prefer their take on fuzz pop to that of their Danish predecessors, the Raveonettes. Which is not to say I dislike the [...]
