Heartless Bastards

I saw this band live at the Firefly Festival in Dover, DE last month and they were terrific! I'm addicted to this album and can't wait to see them perform again.

From the band's Rhapsody profile: "In the early '00s, the Heartless Bastards became the talk of Cincinnati with their crunchy, bluesy fusion of garage rock and power pop. People especially fell for singer, songwriter and guitarist Erika Wennerstrom. The shadowy qualities lurking behind her voice, her persona and her aesthetics are blunt and gritty, like an abandoned parking lot whose surface has crumbled into a gnarled constellation of weeds. With help from the Black Keys, the group secured a deal with Fat Possum Records. Their first two albums, Stairs and Elevators and All This Time, are more or less studio interpretations of the band's killer live show. In contrast, 2009's The Mountain is a gutsy stab at evolution. Made after Wennerstrom relocated to Austin, Tex., where she put together a new lineup, the album finds her adding touches of British folk and country rock to the band's hard rock sound."

Buy tickets at Black Cat website. We can meet for dinner before the show if anyone is interested.

    I'm from Cincinnati and used to see both these bands play local venues all the time. Like many Ohio bands HB left Cincy for brighter prospects elsewhere but I'm looking forward to seeing them play in DC.

    I'm up for it.

    I really encourage everyone to catch the opener, Wussy. They are an excellent live band.

    Sounds like a plan! If anyone wants to join us for dinner, just ask for the "Meetup" group table.

    I'm totally psyched for this. :)

    I don't think they take reservations. We can all congregate outside at 6:30 and then sit down together.
