Whiskey Myers
House of Blues, June 28

If Whiskey Myers were any more '70s, they'd be stuck in a gas line somewhere. The Tyler five-piece look like they just walked off an early Allman Brothers album-cover shoot, and sound about like that too. The seven-year-old band have been around long enough to build up a good-size following in their home state, but now they're in the middle of a bona fide breakthrough thanks to third LP Early Morning Shakes -- the kind of album that recently inspired The Wall Street Journal to dub them "Led Zeppelin set in northeast Texas."

Loaded with Southern-rock swagger, sly humor, and perhaps even a couple of country-radio hits in the making ("Dogwood"), the record recalls early Kings of Leon, except Whiskey Myers sounds like they're having a lot more fun. If you need a second opinion, stick around Shakes long enough to take in their caddish cover of David Allan Coe's "Time Off For Bad Behavior." CHRIS GRAY

I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45 to 85 per/h. Without a doubt, this is the easiest and most financially rewarding job I've ever had. I actually started 6 months ago and this has totally changed my life. For more info visit my user name link...
