Shows On Sale

It’s the last day of the work week before a nice long and well deserved break so I’ll keep this post short and sweet today.

New York rockers The London Souls are playing Bowery Ballroom, and it’s going to be fantastic. Their new album, Here Come The Girls, is set to be released January 8th. These guys can really lay it down.e They have that pure rock sound, reminiscent of early Led Zeppelin. The group kills it with their newest single “City Of Light”. It’s a bit of a softer sound, with some 60′s era rock edge. Grab your tickets for their release party show at noon today.

Denmark’s Mikkel Hess, or Hess Is More, is headlining a show at The Mercury Lounge on December 13th. He released his remix album earlier this summer, which a compilation of mixes created by “friends and heroes” as Hess quotes on his site. The original album, Creation Keeps The Devil Away, in itself is a stimulation of the senses with a clean blend of funk, electro and disco. The remix album provides some nice variation and a little more dance-ability. Check out my favorite remix, “Creation Keeps The Devil Away (Youth Faire remix)” and grab your tickets at noon today.

Kingsley Flood, a six piece band from Boston, provide a catchy mix of pop infused Americana and down home rock. Their sophomore release, Colder Still, is a gritty release with interesting instrumental arrangements that keep each and every song fresh. “Wonderland” and “I Don’t Wanna Go Home” are rich, standout tracks. See the group live at The Mercury Lounge on January 4th, get your tickets at noon.
