Back 2 Back Rock  Roll

The Dead Girls

If The Dead Girls are new to you, perhaps you know their forefathers.

The band formed four years ago out of the ashes of Ulimate Fakebook and Podstar. To further complicate matters, you might actually remember The Dead Girls when they were called Dead Girls Ruin Everything. Regardless you ought to see them Saturday in Lawrence, Kansas at The Jackpot.

Everyone gets back together.

Disbanded back in 1993 Philadelphia New Wave dance pop quartet Book Of Love have reassembled for some shows, and perhaps down the road, new music as well. Catch up with Book Of Love at The Highline Ballroom in New York Sunday.

Sure Cassavettes took Texas with them when they headed north a few years back.

They’ve taken on attributes of their adopted hometown of Boston too. What you end up with is a crackerjack band well worth your time. Cassavettes’ tour reaches Barley’s Taproom in Knoxville Saturday.

Frightened Rabbit was initially Scottish musician Scott Hutchinson.

Hutchinson’s compositions begged a bigger presentation and six years later they are an acclaimed four piece. Their 2008 album “The Midnight Organ Fight” was flat out brilliant. They’re in the U.S. again for a few more days. Whatever you do don’t miss Frightened Rabbit Sunday at The Masquerade in Atlanta.

One member of Go Engine Go says he plays guitar and “tools.”

Another not only plays lap steel and banjo, but may whip out a saw from time to time as well. Check out this imaginative young band Saturday at Neurolux in Boise.

We’ll be seeing a lot more of Sondre Lerche.

The Norweigan singer/songwriter has relocated full time to Brooklyn, New York, and he’s hit the road behind his new album “Heartbeat Radio.” Drop in to The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco Sunday.
