If things had worked as they should, the brand new Bottle Rockets record, South Broadway Athletic Club, should have landed in my mailbox this week. It hasn’t yet (although I’m told it’s on its way). In it’s place I’ve listened to a number of songs from it available via streaming and YouTube. Still, that’s enough for me to know that these guys flat out rock, to be excited that The Bottle Rockets are in town and to recommend their show at The Bowery Electric tonight. Opening that show tonight will be Mark Olsen from the Jayhawks.
But if my recommendation isn’t enough, check this out. I met three people during my travels last night who will also be at The Bottle Rockets show tonight. I’d say that is an endorsement.
The Bottle Rockets (with Mark Olsen opening), The Bowery Electric, 327 Bowery between 2nd and 3rd Streets (6 Train to Bleecker Street or Astor Place, F Train to 2nd Avenue, use the 2nd Avenue exit), doors 7:30pm / show 8pm, $20
