West Palm Beach rootsy rock act the Gallery has a shot at joining the ranks of the Beatles, Madonna, Coldplay, and Aretha Franklin as a cover subject on an upcoming issue of Rolling Stone. But these guys probably owe the most rock 'n' roll debt to another legend, Tom Petty. Regardless, this rare opportunity comes as part of the magazine's "Do You Wanna Be a Rock & Roll Star?" contest featuring 16 "undiscovered" acts from around the U.S. Check out the Gallery's competition for cover glory and a deal with Atlantic Records at rollingstone.com/choosethecover.
In addition, singer/guitarist Brendan Cooney, drummer Ryan Cooney, bassist Dave Mozdzanowski, and lead guitarist Shea Brennan just released an EP, Come Alive. Warren Huart produced the affair, and it's easy to hear a linkage in sound between this release and his work with the Fray and Augustana. Celebrate the band's good fortune at this headlining gig at Respectable Street.
