Today's recommended show come courtesy of imaginary writer ChrisB, who fell in love with Australian band You Am I at SXSW. From his review:
"Huge in their homeland of Australia, You Am I has yet to break in the US… imagine if Elliot Smith fronted the Rolling Stones."
I'm imagining it. And I like it! Go check 'em out tonight — with Steve Turner (of Mudhoney!) and local power-pop charmers the Young Sportsmen — and tune into KEXP at 4p PST to hear them play live on the air.
