Spent the entire four-day holiday indoors, eating leftovers? Itching to do something? May I suggest a trip to Bowery Ballroom on Monday to see the Sam Roberts Band. Though he may get even less attention from the American media than fellow Montrealers The Dears, Roberts is actually one of the most popular rock artists in Canada, with two bestselling albums under his belt. Not only are they genuine hits, they are also, more importantly, good.
Chemical City, released in April, is is straight-up melodic rock that doesn’t reinvent the wheel but has a keen understanding of how it rolls. And, as I like to say, the hooks are undeniable.
