Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Big Leg Emma/Katty Whomp-Us

When: Fri., Aug. 2, 9 p.m. 2013

Big Leg Emma’s latest album, 2012’s Revival, expands on the traditional-meets-contemporary sound the band has been exuding for more than a decade. The harmonies are wonderful throughout the album, and album opener “Back to NY” gives the listener a terrific starting point. The instrumental breakdown during “Rain’s Gonna Fall” will have anyone with ears and a couple of feet hitting the dance floor and getting down all night. The whole album, in fact, carries that sense of motion. It’s a great collection of tunes to toss in the center console for a road trip out west. And if you’ve got a co-pilot, cue up “The Two of Us” for a happy little love tune for the outstretched freeway. Vocalists Steve Johnson and Charity Nuse complement each other perfectly. A good sense of harmony is one of the most cherished elements of songcraft. Enjoy it. Katty Whomp-Us will open tonight. (Eric Sandy)
