Daddy Rabbit’s CD Release at Vet’s Club
July 27 • 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm• $5
If you took the left hemisphere of Lou Reed’s brain — the part that wrote “Foggy Notion” and “Lonesome Cowboy Bill” — steeped it in grape soda, infused it with Buddy Holly’s grin and added a hint Jonathan Richman’s faux-naïve smirk, you might end up with something like Daddy Rabbit, a local rock band fronted by singer/songwriter Robert Jacobs. Unabashedly celebrating a brand of American music that harkens to early rockabilly and hillbilly country, this band is all about a good time, and their latest CD is another dose of unreconstructed pop confection. “Come On Up!” announces itself with the opening title track, a rave-up that veritably commands you to hit the dance floor. Anchored by a hippety-hop rhythm section that includes bassist Marty Garber and drummer Steve Wright, Jacobs cycles through a series of originals anchored in the stuff of easy summer dreams: cool cars, late nights, swooning romance and the escapist shimmy of old-fashioned rock and roll. Long may it live.
Daddy Rabbit plays a CD release show 8pm Friday, July 27, at the Vet’s Club; $5, 21-plus. — Rick Levin
