Blaire Alise & The Bombshells/DTCV/The Lawton Brothers

When: Fri., Aug. 26, 9 p.m. 2016

What is rock ‘n roll’s secret to defying naysayers and surviving past its sixtieth birthday? Steady transfusions of young blood! Fans of local teen garage punk phenoms Archie and the Bunkers (who are now internationally-acclaimed) will appreciate the spunk and youthful abandon of Blaire Alise and the Bombshells. Currently a student at New York University, Alise wasted no time establishing herself in Detroit’s longstanding garage rock scene. While still in high school, she founded the Bombshells, who recorded their 2014 debut album For My Darlin’ with Detroit’s Jim Diamond (the Dirtbombs, Bantam Rooster, les Sexareenos). The band followed it up with a 2015 EP, Just Another Day, and Alise signed with Nashville’s Carlin America. Alise’s vocals are laced with rockabilly sass and her songwriting spiked with pop sensibility. She doesn’t wait around for her fans to dance, but she sure does make it hard to stop once they do.
