Sunday, October 23, 2011
Great Show at Cafe 11... There is some real talent here.
Frontwoman Shannon Shaw (bass/vocals) is accompanied by her “clams” a.k.a. Cody Blanchard (guitar/vocals) to form Shannon and the Clams, a garage/pop/rock band from Oakland, Calif.
Together The Clams provide a secret ingredient that binds together doo-wop, early rock and R&B, girl group classics, 60′s garage/psych, surf and glints of punk in a way that’s hard to get across in words. You have to listen to it. You have to see it when it comes to your town. Call it what you want; Young Oldies, Garage Rock, Surf, Doo Wop, Punk, whatever, It's magical.
Opening acts Andrew Virga, King Lollipop and Wet Nurse
