American Aquarium is a big-hearted band that manages to make metaphors of hard-drinking and fast-living oddly touching while pouring all their energy into their shows. Imagine blending the Drive by Truckers with Bruce Springsteen, then throw in a little Ryan Adams and some Wilco and top the whole thing off with a bottle of Jameson. That little concoction would yield the unabashed rock and roll/country sound of American Aquarium.
American Aquarium is appearing at George’s Majestic Lounge on Thurs., Jan. 31, with opening act, Damn Arkansan.

"At a time when so many bands are busy di**ing around with art school interpretations of roots music, trying to reinvent the wheelbarrow and create an avant-garde Americana revolution, it's refreshing to hear American Aquarium throw a fastball right down the middle."
yep that's what an AA show will do.. What did you think?
