Paul Thorn, Minus The Bear, Jamie Lidell, Cowboy Junkies, Collie Buddz...
Last Saturday, quite a few shows hit the books and are beginning to shape the late spring calendar. Before you hit the road to escape our oven-like summers, you can't miss these shows:
4/3 - Paul Thorn's Southern-fried roots-infused gospel rock will forcibly take your hand, raise it high in the air, and shake it silly. With your musical demons expelled, a glorified boogie is in order.
4/21 - Collie Buddz and The Grouch bring the unique genre of dancehall to our humble desert. With a buoyant mix of rap, dance, and reggae, your booty will damn-near shake itself.
4/24 - Minus The Bear puts on a live rock show like hardcore nerds to hardcore calculus: with precision and grace, leaving any spectators speechless and chin-scratchingly impressed.
5/30 - Cowboy Junkies have it good. Take an easygoing beat, tangy guitars, and a velvet voice, and you've got the country Junkie rock we can't wait to witness again at Rialto.
5/31 - Jamie Lidell is Jim. Well, at least that's the bad ass funkified persona he adopts on his new record. Think Amy Winehouse, but a dude. Okay, that's a scary thing to imagine, but musically you get the idea.
The Black Key's New Record Produced By Danger Mouse
The blues-rock duo The Black Keys, due to play at Rialto on March 27 just released some fantabulous news. Their new record, Attack & Release, is produced by super-producer Danger Mouse. According to Pitchfork, the record will also feature guitarist Marc Ribot, multi-instrumentalist Ralph Carney, guitarist Dan Auerbach, and bluegrass singer Jessica Lea Mayfield (who incidently will be opening for The Avett Brothers the night after, March 28).
We feel special to be treated to a pre-release performance by The Black Keys featuring their newest material. Don't miss out, buy tickets now!
