Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

The Steepwater Band/Ben Miller Band

When: Thu., March 19, 8 p.m. 2015

With an emphasis relentlessly good times in mind and a keen sense of bitchin’ grooves, The Steepwater Band has kept on serving up killer music since 1998. In 2011, the band released Clava, which serves well to highlight the band’s throwback rock ’n’ roll roots. Jeff Massey lays down some seriously dynamic vocal work throughout the album and his guitar washes rinse the music nicely in feedback and flange. Each song on the album, in fact, lets those elements play out patiently and properly. Tod Bowers’s percussive throwdown steadies the rhythm as Joe Winters modulates the background with his basslines. Dig “Vanishing Girl” for the desert rock vibes that you’re sure to find strewn about the disc. (Eric Sandy)
