Aug 6, 2012 Pick of the Week
Posted by Mojo
Los Angeles’ Dead Sara, whose April 2012 debut brought us the breakout song “Weatherman”, bring an infectious raw energy to their brand of garage rock. Check the video and tell me you aren’t moved. When I first saw it I was immediately blown away by the sound and passion of lead singer Emily Armstrong — it reminded of the first time I heard Kory Klarke with his New York political punk fury fronting Warrior Soul back in the day. Dead Sara have a softer side as well, able to pull off a soulful acoustic jam like “Sorry for it All” with equally disarming emotion. They were playing on the Vans Warped Tour until guitarist Siouxsie fractured her ribs recently, but will be returning in the fall to open for the Offspring. Catch them if you can!
