@LMBNOLA: Photos from Stockholm Syndrome @ Tipitina’s 8/20/11
Stockholm Syndrome capped a quick and dirty August national tour at Tipitina’s with a deafening and thunderous 2-hour set heavy on freight train rock and roll (like the setcapper “Road to Damascus”). There were a few lighter moments like the jazzy “Purple Hearts”, a Schools-led “Who Dat” chant and the classic funk nod on “Couldn’t Get It Right,” but the lasting impact (and ringing in the ears) of the show was quite simply how hard these guys rocked and Eric McFadden’s amazing stylistic range on the guitar.
Wesley grew up in coastal Georgia and is a former resident of The Music City and the Big Easy where he helped get Live Music Blog: NOLA off-the-ground, managing it in New Orleans through Jazz Fest 2012. Hodges now lives amongst THE CALIFORNIANS as a newcomer to West LA. His favorite artists include My Morning Jacket, Sigur Rós, Widespread Panic, The Allman Brothers Band, Dr. Dog, Tame Impala, Anders Osborne, Radiohead and Bobby & The Midnites.
Daft Punk is actually playing at his house tonight and you're invited.
