Miss Quincy and the Showdown make the blues super sexy

While I missed Christie Rose’s opening set, she sang beautiful background vocals and played some excellent keyboards with Miss Quincy as they played much of their latest CD “Roadside Recovery” including the title track, “Making Money” which had me singing along with “the cheapest bar in town”  chorus and which was one of several tracks of gritty blues which sounded like a blend of the Black Keys and Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer.

They wound things down with “Bad Love” from the new CD and and ended with “Wild Fucking West” before being called back for an encore of two slower, more countryish songs.

 They also played their hot cover of Ray Wylie Hubbard’s Snake Farm’ but didn’t sing the “eeeeeeewwww“ that make their cover so adorable.

It’s just too bad they didn’t have the crowd they deserve, though they did attract approximately 40-50 people, most of whom were either dancing, tapping their toes or singing along with their  catchy choruses.

 Interspersed between sleazy, dirty blues reminiscent of the aforementioned Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer and the Black Keys.

 They were called back for an encore of slower songs including “ Watertower” from their new CD.
