8/29: Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes ay HOB

Posted By on Thu, Aug 27, 2009 at 2:41 PM

In the rush to canonize Bruce Springsteen back in the ’70s, several other New Jersey musical deities were shunted unfairly into a secondary position. Chief among them was John Lyon and his band of R&B-flecked rockers. Although plagued by a lack of commercial success and bad luck with record companies, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes have consistently risen above it all to craft shiver-inducing studio offerings and sweat-drenched live recordings, the latest being the brand-new concert CD Hearts of Stone (also the name of their 1978 album). Lyon began self-releasing albums eight years ago, maintaining control and making music his way without label interference. He may not have Bruce’s platinum records or Grammys, but among his legion of fans, Southside Johnny’s blistering club appearances are every bit as anticipated as the Boss’ epic arena shows. The concert starts at 9 p.m. at House of Blues (308 Euclid Ave., 216.523.2583). Tickets: $27.50 advance, $30 day of show. — Brian Baker
