Low Cut Connie/The Yawpers/Hamilton Handshake

When: Fri., Oct. 20, 8:30 p.m. 2017

Low Cut Connie singer-pianist Adam Weiner grew up in New Jersey in the ’80s and absorbed plenty of classic rock ’n’ roll in the process. He initially took piano lessons and then got the “the rock ’n’ roll and country and blues and country bug.” A stint in Memphis set him “on a path," and he absorbed as much blues as is humanly possible. He then began playing the gay bar circuit after moving to New York. Over the years, about 15 people have come through Low Cut Connie, which came together in 2010 and now calls Philadelphia home. The band recorded its fourth studio album, Dirty Pictures (Part 1), live-to-analog tape at Ardent Studios in Memphis. It contains "Revolution Rock N Roll." One of the year’s best singles, the tune that features a bit of barroom piano, bristles with raw energy. “Touch my body/touch my soul,” sings Weiner as the song lifts off. Be sure to catch the accompanying music video which features a blow-up doll in various poses. Elton John's a fan of the band, and his endorsement speaks volumes to the group's promise. (Niesel)
