Event

The Sweetback Sisters
Sure it's Saint Patrick's Day. And sure that usually means Celtic music. But instead, why not get out for a night with a real, earthy, renegade retro band that mixes up country, swing and honky tonk? Sweetback Sisters Emily Miller and Zara Bode may not be blood relations, but their precise, family-style harmonies recall the best of country music from the Everlys to The Judds, as well as the spirited rockabilly energy of Wanda Jackson, one of the band's role models. Like the artists they admire, the Sweetbacks are concerned with the traditional (and very Celtic) subjects of heartbreak, revenge, remorse and staying strong in the face of relationships gone wrong, albeit with a contemporary sensibility. From the first night Emily and Zara joined Jesse Milnes, Ron Bellenoit, Stefan Amidon, and Peter Bitenc, playing together at a tip jar joint in Brooklyn, crowds have gone wild for their close harmonies, charismatic stage presence and the crackling musicianship. The tension between their various backgrounds gives the music something original and exciting, but in a way it's also an homage to what country music used to be: a melting pot of rock, jazz, and traditional music.
