[BIZARRO ROCK ‘N ROLL] Putting her all into every note, belting out woes or carrying a melody, Shannon Shaw demands attention every time she sings, and it’s a lovely thing to witness. Guitarist Cody Blanchard picks with Hank Williams-inspired guitar while harmonizing with Shaw and, along with a rotating drummer, they form a throwback band that could be from no time but the present. Shannon and the Clams' sound is a blend of '50s rock, '60s psychedelia, '80s punk and the time lessons of the Muppets. Third full-length Dreams in the Rat House came out last year, delivering cleverly structured songs and lyrics lined with a dose of jest. Whether dressed in In-N-Out uniforms or vintage ensembles, the Clams have always got something kitschy up their sleeve, but it's backed by raw emotion and fierce dedication.
