Official CMJ Showcase: Alberta Cross + The Candles
Southern rock by way of England
Alberta Cross make ideal roadtrippin’ music; in other words the kind of jams you could listen to for a long time. The English formed, Brooklyn-based duo take their sound from both locales, creating dark rock with Americana soul, but with distinctly British undertones. They’ve hit the festival circuit with spots at Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Coachella and now they’re bringing it home to perform alongside special guest The Candles. It's all really good stuff. General admission. Over 21s only.
"Fog-clearing pipes nod to MMJ's Jim James, and whose South-of-the-Mason-Dixon guitar chops recall the Followill Bros."
