Cities You Wish You Were From and Jessica Malone play their hometown
Friday, January 24, 9pm, The Starlet Room, $10 Advance $12 Door
One day you may find yourself asking the age-old question that has crossed the mind of every sonic enthusiast at one time or another. How much noise could two guys—armed with a drum set, guitar and a stack of amps—really make? Well if you’re desperately searching for answers, then you can rest easy, because your answer is right here with 2020 Sacramento Area Music Awards nominee Cities You Wish You Were From. Eli Jenkins and Tyler Downie are the only members of the genre-bending band, blasting more musical ferocity than you’d ever expect from two people, straddling the line between the crunchy distortion of hard rock and the call-and-response stylings of the blues. They’ll be playing a show along with fellow SAMMIES nominee Jessica Malone, in a venue you’ll wish you were at. 2708 J St., thestarletroom.com.
