Rock & Roll: Alive and Well

I am very optimistic about the future of rock and roll! For a while, there was a lot of dance/pop music dominating the airways, but there currently seems to be a really strong crop of rock and roll bands out there to that I am really excited about.

Attending the Made in America concert the past two years has introduced me to a number of bands that I am listening to and going to see in concert.  I saw Gary Clark Jr. there for the fist time and just caught him opening for Kings of Leon the other night.  Love him and them!  This year at Made in America, I saw Imagine Dragons and The Gaslight Anthem, two more bands I look forward to seeing in concert again.  Dr. Dog is another favorite of mine and I finally got to see them live again after missing every one of their local shows the past two years.  A couple of bands that I haven’t seen yet but hope to see soon are Arcade Fire and Arctic Monkeys. There’s so much good stuff out there, it’s hard to name just a few of my faves.

Who’s your  favorite “new” band?
