Low Cut Connie Gots Nothing to Hide at JB’s Nov.9

Low Cut Connie Gots Nothing to Hide at JB’s Nov.9

Low Cut Connie occupies the stage tonight at Johnny Brenda’s. With the recent release of their sophomore album, Call Me Sylvia, the quartet have developed a reputation for they’re back to basics boogie style rock ‘n’ roll. The sound does incorporate various essentials of the classic rock/Chicago-style blues vibe. However, the most important aspect may be the gritty up close and personal nothing-to-hide mentality, which the group implores. Pianist/vocalist, Adam Weiner (formerly known as Ladyfingers), can lead an up-tempo New Orleans-style boogie track, and then flip the script to country-folk saloon-style blues and everything in between. Along with Birmingham, England transplant, Dan Finnemore, smashing the skins, this band isn’t retrograde; it’s fundamentally pure taking a true heart and soul approach. Whether it’s the smooth down-home boogie of the keys, the chunky garage-style guitar riffs, or the vocals which have that worn deep-down-in-the-chest blues/soul vibe, these songs have that relatable aggressively fun edge - pissed off yet playful. Adam & Dave’s Bloodline will also be opening the evening playing music with a folksy, stripped-down garage aesthetic that maximizes the tried-and-true combinations of swift painted-stroked guitar uniting them with an unassuming rhythm section capable of pushing into high gear at any moment. The pair of bands may jog your musical memory. But, the appeal doesn’t lie in turning back the clock; rather, in playing music that captures raw unfiltered emotion in its prime state.
