Asphalt Valentine returned to the Deadwood Saloon last Thursday night. The band played here back in January, but singer Joe Flynt was ill, and his vocals were inaudible at that show. (You can read about that show here.) The band promised to return, and to rock the Deadwood Saloon on their trip back.
I can happily say, they made good on their promise.The band played a tight set of tunes from their up and coming CD, Strip Rock Roll that will soon to be released by Chavis Records. The set included the following tunes:
Down To the Aces, Motorcade, Hard Life, It’s Not Me, Dirty Little Secret, Don’t Come Easy, Love & Gone, Love Story, Strip Rock Roll, Never Lose It, Be Your Drug, and Bombshell
The band was in good form, and I was surprised at how much singer, Joe Flynt sounded like a young Vince Neil at times. Asphalt Valentine has a bunch of cool hard edged tunes at their disposal, and the Deadwood Saloon provided a perfect intimate setting to check them out for the first time. I expect once the new album is released, Asphalt Valentine will not be playing in small clubs for much longer.
Be sure to catch one of their live shows coming up soon! The band will also be playing Saturday evening at Rocklahoma 2008! For more information, go check out Asphalt Valentine’s myspace page!
