Azalea City jam fans are buzzing about this show. The London Souls will open the evening with a set of furious, unbridled rock ‘n’ roll. Since 2008, this New York trio has brought the world a guitar-driven rock sound with a classic infusion. The London Souls are touring in support of their follow-up to their 2011 self-titled debut. “Here Come the Girls” has been in the band’s arsenal since 2013. However, front man Tash Neal’s recuperation from a near-fatal hit-and-run accident kept the album from moving forward. Neal is back and stronger than ever, and the band’s unforgettable live performance at the Saenger will serve as evidence of the band’s resiliency.
When Warren Haynes left The Allman Brothers to focus on Gov’t Mule, fans experienced an uncertainty as to whether this would be a side-project or a full-time band. Twenty years later, Mule maintains a busy tour schedule and pulls crowds of dedicated fans with each show. During their 20th anniversary celebration, the band produced a series of special releases. “Dub Side of the Mule” serves as the final album of the commemoration. It features their 2006 New Year’s Eve performance at New York’s Beacon Theater, which includes a one-hour reggae set and a plethora of special guests.
