New Year's Eve 2011: Elephantgun at Swampgrass Willy's
Remember before all the "Sex on Fire" stuff when Kings of Leon were a down-and-dirty, long-haired, rollicking rock band? Melbourne-based band Elephantgun may refresh your memory. With the same kind of charging, sing-along choruses and mush-mouthed, Southern-inflected vocals, the group picks up where the more famous act left off when it went pop.
Fun fact: Bassist David Pastorius is the nephew of the late, great Jaco. With his nimble rhythm-section skills, expect a little funky swing thrown in too. The group headlines a party at Swampgrass Willy's in Palm Beach Gardens, with opener Ricky Johnson warming things up.
10 p.m. Saturday, December 31, at Swampgrass Willy's, 9910 Alt. A1A, Palm Beach Gardens. Admission is $5; age 21 and up. Click here.
