Girl Crush: Shannon Shaw

I love, love, love, love, love Shannon Shaw. I first fell in love with her as one of Hunx’s Punkettes – her voice on the record “Too Young to Be in Love” totally slayed me. When I saw them live it caused my mind to explode. In the subsequent days of my putting my brain back together, I discovered her other band – Shannon and the Clams – and it all just re-exploded.

From the lips of this adorable creature springs forth this effortlessly soulful growl which is basically the best thing ever. I can’t wait to see them again on June 20th at Bowery Ballroom with the also-awesome Mikal Cronin!
