TONIGHT: VANDELLA WITH WEST NILE RAMBLERS

vandella_3

Vandella draws their music from Motown, classic rock, Southern rock, folk-rock, blues, and modern-day sounds of indie pop/rock. It’s like if Ryan Adams was backed by The Band, or Jenny Lewis took over for Jay Farrah and Jeff Tweedy in Uncle Tupelo. It’s 1970s rock via the present.

TONIGHT: DOWN NORTH

Down North Promo Shot 2012 smallDown North masterfully mixes underground rock and party-fueling soul, regularly lifting up audiences that have been craving new soul sounds

early single “Danger” was played on MTV’s The Real World even before
this killer line-up was settled on. Newer meatier cuts like “So What,”

the Black Rock psyche-outs of guest legendary axeman Jabrille) reveal
the band moving in even edgier, sweatier musical realms.
