Von Shakes take their anthemic rock to Shea Stadium tonight (12.12)

Rock quartet Von Shakes have a love for NYC that seems lost sometimes on people that have lived here all their lives. Moving here a few years ago from Ireland, the group is bringing our city the kind of anthemic rock joy ingredient that's somewhat scarce in our local rock music.

And considering how large their studio recordings sound, it's easy to imagine how insane they must be when you find yourself in the middle of a sweaty set. So get your butt down to Shea Stadium tonight and see them when they play a just-announced gig, and check out a live recording of the charging 'Robinson Crusoe' here. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
