The Stolen Sweets, Casey MacGill

8 pm., Friday September 27 | $12.
Jimmy Mak's
221 NW 10th Ave.
 
[VINTAGE VOCAL JAZZ] The Stolen Sweets could easily be written off as a throwback gimmick, and one wouldn’t be wrong in doing so, what with their calls back to the Boswell Sisters and other vintage greats. But there’s something more at play here: Sure, they’ll record an album on antique equipment and deploy a legion of cigarette girls in the crowd for time-machine theatrics, but this is very much a modern affair, with three leading ladies amping up the dormant come-hither sexuality of the genre’s subdued roots, unleashing a siren song that’s impossible to resist. That’s not to mention local legend Pete Krebs holding down the guitar like a jazz-hall master transplanted to modern day. So yes, it’s a throwback, but one that does the past the courtesy of introducing it to a modern sensibility.
