Coming this Friday on March 1st is the start of musical series, First Fridays at the National History Museum. Kicking off First Fridays is Shannon Shaw along with Pinky Pinky! Pinky Pinky, an alternative indie trio, has shown that their young age can’t hold them back! The group has their own take on what it means to be in an all-female rock band. Their sound is nothing short of authentic, creating original sounds and having fun while doing so.
Shannon Shaw is a star on the rise with her recent release of Shannon in Nashville. Most known for being the vocalist, bassist, and founder of Shannon & The Clams, Shannon Shaw has ventured out own her own solo expedition. Since the formation of her band in 2009, the vocalist and her bandmates have created a fusion of familiar musical styles into one unique sound. Shaw and her band caught the eyes of The Black Keys member, Dan Auerbach who quickly collaborated with Shaw to create her own solo sound. In 2018, Shannon in Nashville is released with each blues tune enthralling fans with the singer’s powerful and rich voice. The album is full of emotional gems including practices of self-sabotage while remembering a past love. Heartbreak and rejection become the main message but subtle themes of a hopeful future arise.
For those unfamiliar with First Fridays, expect a stacked lineup of DJ performers, guest speakers, food trucks, cocktails, and much more. Explore the myths and facts about fires, floods, droughts, and earthquakes with a main focus on the science behind fires. Learn more on California fires and how humans can benefit and impact them.
