It takes a little attiitude
But I know that I can show these things to you.
You can shake it too.
You’ve got to get up now,
If you’re the one to get down.
You’ve got to shake what shakes.
-J Roddy Walston & The Business, “Rock & Roll The Second”
Last night at Slim’s J Roddy Walston & The Business put on one of the best shows I’ve seen this year. I’d never seen them outside of Baltimore before, and it was amazing to see them packed on to the tiny Slim’s stage just completely killing it. Beautiful, loud, raucous, dancing, fun, rock & roll.
