The stage is set and the CD’s are ready to go as Thursday night nears. Sure, it would be easy to start discussions about the upcoming weekend, but Thursday night will see the EP release for Boomtown Riot at First Avenue 7th St Entry. I had a chance to listen to the self-titled EP, and was blown away. To realize that this is the first EP from Boomtown Riot is pretty incredible.
Twin Cities music fans may recognize singer/guitarist Jake Kemble previously from Kick, but he seems to have hit a new groove with Boomtown Riot. The songs throughout the EP are through the roof, well thought out, and completely ear-wormy. The last time we caught up with the band at the Parkway Theatre, the performance was incredible. It’s no doubt that Kemble is the frontman of Boomtown Riot – his Mick Jagger-esque strut, huge kicks and jumps and off-the-wall energy paired with his flawless vocals. The band is rounded out by Jeff Noller (keyboard/guitars), Jimmy Lyback (bass/vocals) and Jeremy Krueth (drums) who leave nothing to be missed.
It is no doubt that this EP release performance will be a great evening. To add to the evening’s performance, The Shackletons, The Usual Things, and Dan Tedesco will be joining the party, with performances sure to get the crowd into a frenzy.
Tickets are still available online through First Avenue
with THE SHACKLETONS, THE USUAL THINGS, and DAN TEDESCO
