If there’s one thing that Clairy Browne and the Bangin’ Rackettes prove, it’s that music always benefits from a little attitude. Their sound captures a swanky sense of fun from the blues era, delivering a healthy kick that wakes the soul to an experience beyond clichés and catchy hooks. Supported by a classic trio of backup singers, Browne performs original tunes in a smoky voice that sparks raw energy and captures the heart of her audience.

Monday 8/11. $18, 7:30pm. The Southern Café and Music Hall, 103 S. First St. 977-5590.

    Clairy and her band mates are the best. I’ve been listening to them since I discovered the Love Letter song in a beer commercial. I got the chance to see them live in Chicago and they do not disappoint. Listen to these ladies. Their band is top notch with one of the best saxophone players around.

    Ah yes the Blues Era. It was every bit as good as the Jazz, R & B, and Rock eras. Smokin’ tune apart from any manquee writing issues!
