TYLER BRYANT & THE SHAKEDOWN
Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown recently started working with producer Vance Powell, who’s known for his work with Jack White, among others. Their new single, “Loaded Dice & Buried Money,” showcases the band’s signature sound: straight ahead, no holds barred, garage rock. Bryant gained early critical praise when he was handpicked to play Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival and to open for Jeff Beck’s 2011 tour. It’s been two years since the band released their debut, Wild Child, but the new EP, The Wayside, is full of songs in their signature sound and should keep fans happy until their next full length is released. Anyone who’s a fan of guitar heavy, garage rock is sure to appreciate Bryant and his band, and their hometown show celebrating the release of the new EP will a great first foray into their sound.
Nashville psychedelic-tinged alt rock band and blog faves The Wans are one that we can’t ever get enough of. Their sound is loud and energetic, a perfect pairing for Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown on this bill. A modern garage band with a retro vibe, The Wans are a band not to be missed, if you’ve somehow managed to miss them up to this point.
Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown and The Wans will perform tonight, Nov. 12 at The Basement East. The show is 21+, begins at 9 p.m. (doors at 8:30 p.m.), and tickets are available for $10 in advance or $12 at the door.
