Friday: Erika Wennerstrom @ Beachland Ballroom

If you follow TZA, you’ll know I’m a big fan of Erika Wennerstrom as the front person for Heartless Bastards, seeing them in 20102016.  It’s totally fitting that she put out her own album last year and I’m thrilled she’s swinging by the Beachland Ballroom on Friday!  Check out a video below, as well as Scene’s write up as one their highlighted concerts this weekend!  I have high expectations.


 "Erika Wennerstrom/Jivviden/John Kalman

Formed back in 2003, the garage rock band Heartless Bastards emerged from the ashes of the Dayton-based garage rock act Shesus. With a little help from Black Keys drummer Patrick Carney, a fan of the band who passed their demo on to the folks at the Fat Possum label, the group inked a record deal within a year or two of forming and toured and recorded relentlessly up until last year. Last year, however, band members decided to take a break. With the Bastards on hiatus, singer-guitarist Erika Wennerstrom started to work on a solo album. That disc, Sweet Unknown, just came out earlier this year, and Wennerstrom comes to town in the wake of its release for the first time. It's another gritty collection of tunes that'll appeal to the same indie rock/garage fans who know and love the Heartless Bastards. (Niesel) 8 p.m., $15. Beachland Ballroom."
