"The Lincoln Bedroom @ Molly Malone's"

I've lost count of how many times I've gone to a bar to review a specific band and because I got there early was treated to an opening band that blew my socks off, and in the process destroyed the band I was there to see. The Lincoln Bedroom was that band recently.

The Lincoln Bedroom is comprised of four unpretentious musicians who write killer up-beat, fun songs, that are great to jump around to while tossing back a few pints and a shot or two. Their MySpace references their music as Indie /Country but in my ears I hear distinct roots based in Irish bar music, and I know no music better to jump around drinking to. Plus the energy these guys fill the stage with is so positive, rousing and infectious you'd have to be dead not to get caught up in their musical tsunami.

And aside from writing fun songs, The Lincoln Bedroom is made up of four top notch musicians. By far the most animated of the bunch, bouncing around like he's got ants in his pants and an absolute blast to watch, is the drummer Zetumer. On some songs Zutumer is playing normally with two drum sticks, then the next song he might have a drum stick in one hand and a shaker or tambourine in the other. But the hand without the drum stick is the one that's banging the cymbals. And don't think the other guys are sticks in the mud either. All four are personable, talkative on stage and interacting with the crowd, and really have fun playing music together.

The Lincoln Bedroom is currently in the studio to record a full length CD over the summer so hit them up to check out their current 4 song EP. - All Access Magazine

There is only one way to really experience what the Lincoln Bedroom is all about: listing bands they sound like. It’s Hank Williams backed by the Attractions in a Beatles cover band. It’s George Jones singing with Green Day. Indie meets country meets power pop. And Nick Lowe is walking around somewhere.

Almost as effective is the music. On its 2010 debut album, “BROKEN RECORD,” the band delivers the sound LA has selfishly kept to itself: tautly constructed pop songs, played with equal parts care and urgency. Catchy verse and catchier chorus. From the frenetically tender “Whiskey, You” to the joyous melancholy of “I Just Want to See Her Face Again,” the Bedroom will make a fan of the jaded hipster and unrepentant pop lover alike.

Even offstage, these fellows are no slouches. Richman spends his days putting away criminals, as an honest to goodness district attorney, which is baffling. Zetumer spends his days and nights as an A-list screenwriter, with “Bourne” and “Bond” to his name, which is awesome. Laskin owns, which is a great call. And Woodlock is Hollywood’s top celebrity cardboard portraitist, which is unique.

If you can’t see them play live, figure out a way to fix that. But if you really can’t , no, seriously, you have to see them live. But if you really, really can’t, rejoice that “BROKEN RECORD” is here.
