3 distinct shows, including The Thermals, hit area

               The inaugural Uproar Festival brings the noise to Post Falls, The Thermals’ bandleader is feeling the love and Hanson is all souled out.

              That’s just a glimpse of the live music highlights coming to the area over the next few days.



              The three brothers who make up Hanson are looking to the old school for inspiration on their latest album, “Shout It Out,” released in July on their own 3CG Records.
The album features appearances by a Motown great, Funk Brothers bassist Bob Babbitt, and horn arranger Jerry Hey, who worked with Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones and Earth, Wind and Fire.

             “Shout It Out” has received critical praise from Billboard, Salon and Entertainment Weekly, which said the record shimmers with top-shelf songcraft.

              In a news release, singer/keyboardist Taylor Hanson likens the trio to a 1970s rock band made up of “white guys from the Midwest who grew up listening to ’50s and ’60s soul, who are mixing guitars with vintage keys and melodic songs.”
