The Pretty Reckless

 

This band puts out some crazy loud ! Although they’ve been around for a few years, their second album, Going to Hell is the one that’s getting all the play. Their recent gig as backup for Nickelback on their North American tour introduced the most awesome female rock vocalist since Joan Jett screamed out “I Love Rock and Roll”. Lead vocalist Taylor Momsen really knows how to rule an audience. Her badass lyrics and platinum hair the epitome of a female rock legend she belts out songs like “Follow Me Down” and “Blame Me”.

Having been fortunate enough to catch her live in Edmonton I immediately had to ask myself where she had been. The only radio play resulting from the announcement of The Pretty Reckless being the backup for Nickelback. The first vinyl I purchased in over 20 years being the 2014 album “Going to Hell“. Not your typical old black album but a nice white in contrast to the dark sleeve. Vinyl has come a long way and the old faulty colored vinyl has undergone a new process resulting in the crisp sound you can only get from your favorite record on a great turntable. The purchase also included a digital download saving us the trouble of using an inferior recording device to convert our new album to MP3.

This concert left me feeling “Pretty Reckless”
