London Souls - Highline Ballroom, NYC 7-11-08

Update: The show at the Mercury Lounge has been moved to August 14th and the band will be playing with the always fabulous Second Dan.

The London Souls have been around the scene for a while but I hadn't caught their live show prior to seeing them open for Kirsten Price at the Highline Ballroom. Even though the band is fairly young, they have a raw blues-rock sound that dates back to the late 60's sounds of Cream, Jimi Hendrix and the MC5.

The band is currently unsigned (though that won't last for long) and will be releasing their debut CD later this year. The band has just one track streaming on their MySpace page and they also have a (different) track on the recently released Green Owl Records charity compilation.

Here are some pictures from the band's set at the Highline Ballroom

...and here is a live video from one of the band's SxSw performances.

The band has a couple shows coming up:
August 9 @ Mercury Lounge w/Francis and the Lights (Tickets are $10)
August 14th @ Mercury Lounge w/Second Dan (Tickets are $10)
August 29 @ RocksOff Cruise on The Temptress w/Fishbone (Tickets are $25)
