On Sunday, June 2nd, I saw Shannon and The Clams play an amazing set at The Constellation Room. DJ Meow Mix and I have been fans of theirs for a long time, but it was the first time either of us had seen them live. Basically, we danced the night away and left with smiles as wide as the summer sky.
Aquadolls opened the show, and it was a ton of fun from the get go. They threw confetti and balloons in the crowd and kept us very entertained. Their set was especially good because they had a few new songs I had not heard before, and ended the set with my favorite from them, Sinus Infection. Cherry Glazerr went on after and were super good as usual, except one of the singers was missing that night, so they didn’t play the song Bloody Bandaid which was a bummer since it’s one of my favorites from them.

When Shannon and The Clams came on, everyone was cheering and ready to have their minds blown away. We surely weren’t disappointed. It was hard not to shake your hips to the catchy doo-wop garage punk songs which were so energizing. They played a nice mix of old favorites and new gems from their album that just came out called Dreams In The Rat House. Also, a strange man who seemed to be a friend of the band came on stage mid set and started giving the crowd a strip tease. It was innocent but entertaining, nonetheless. Overall, Sunday night was a fantastic one, thanks to this incredible show.
