Browning Automatics at the Shamrock Pub
Rounding the corner of the Shamrock’s bar and into their staging room, I expected something big. I heard the roar of a big blues-rock band and I knew I was in for a treat.
I was quite surprised to find two men on stage. Shane Browning, guitar and vocals, and Justin Carpenter, drums, were laying down some hard hitting blues rock laden with rough rock and bluesy riffs.
The music was much tighter this go-around then their show at the V Club a few weeks ago after they had just formed. The Browning Automatics churned out a fresh and lively sound any band should be proud of, let alone a new group.
Both are formerly of Adam Bienek and the Sound Assassins, but their sound is different. They have a real Black Keys feel with their return to roots rock and two-man lineup. This is a band worth watching as they grow.
Speaking of the Shamrock, Ian (Booking guy) and I have some great ideas in store for the local music scene, so keep checking out the Tri-State Music Scene!
