Shannon and the Clams have been one of my favorite local bands since 2011. They have been a band I’ve supported wholeheartedly throughout the years. A band that I’ve listened to during some of the worst times of my life and a band that has given me some of the best memories of my life. I will always get starstruck when I see Shannon Shaw out and about, because the 19 year old inside me that cried along to her voice just freezes when I see her. They met at the same college I went to (California College of the Arts) and are making albums that never fail to make me feel all the feelings I forgot I could.
