J Roddy | Slim's Downtown | Clubs & Concerts | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Fri., July 30, 10 p.m. 2010
Price: $7

Following the release of their self-titled debut full-length on Vagrant Records (a label they belong on about as well as The Hold Steady, which is to say not very well at all), Baltimore's J. Roddy Walston & The Business are poised to outgrow small rooms and reach the level they've long deserved (and might've easily attained in the '70s). It's almost a shame, too; a dive like Slim's is ideal for the quartet's beefy, arena-size bar rock, powered by pounded piano chords and a rowdy Southern boogie but laced with irresistible hooks. Former members of Prabir & The Substitutes keep up the punchy power pop in young Richmond four-piece The Trillions.—Spencer Griffith
