ASK iAN * SUNSET STRIP REVIEW – Words by Marisa Rose Ficara ( Reporter of the Year )
Defeated crowd members elbowed their way to catch Black Rebel Motorcycle Club on the West Stage. Breaking into their first song off their new album Specter At The Feast
for many, this was the first time hearing rock music since entering the strip. The crowd sang along, â€śIâ€™m not proud of it, too proud of it / but Iâ€™m fine, just fine with itâ€ťâ€“ dark lyrics for a black leather-clad triad of musicians who exemplify the perfect sound of modern rock and classic roll onstage. Those in the crowd unfamiliar with BRMC were thrown away watching female drummer Leah Shapiro put on an amazing show from her kit. Lead singer and guitarist Nick Jago
revived the strip and reminded all why they were all there: to â€śspread your loveâ€ť on the Sunset Strip.
