Words by Jon Ching

Local blues rockers, the Down and Outlaws, played the Great American Music Hall last Friday, July 8th, releasing their new album, Above Snakes.  Not only is this a new album for the San Francisco band, it’s their debut LP.  Their performance was high energy, foot-stomping rock n’ roll played tight and well executed.  Though this is the band’s first album, they are seasoned live performers and treated the crowd to a great set with their amps turned up to 11.  It was the perfect way to blow off the week’s steam and gear up for the beautiful, sunny Phono Del Sol Music Festival.

Supported by Jesus Sons and Dirty Denim, it was a night of festivity and triumph as the band embarks on a new stage of their career.
