A Case of the Fridays - Monday Edition

Yeah, a little off-schedule with this column, but I’ve been a bit busy recently. We kick things off with The Jones’ “You Don’t Have The Stones.” The Jones (pictured) make it low down and bluesy, with a pounding, driving rhythm that’s not too far from Zep’s “When The Levee Breaks” while tossing out a few nice lyrical lines and dirty guitar licks along the way. Like what you hear? They power trio’s got a CD release party this Friday, June 27th at The Red & The Black in DC.

Yep, that’s right, Toadies are back on tour, so throw on your flannel, and head out for some stomping riffs and Todd Lewis considerable vocals. You remember the 90s classic “Possum Kingdom,” now don’t you? (“Do you wanna die…yada yada yada?”) It still rocks. They’ll be at the Black Cat this Wednesday, June 25th.
