Oakland’s Shannon and the Clams are practically an institution these days. Having just released their third full length LP Dreams in the Rat House, the punk rock doo wop mash up three piece consisting of vocalist and bassist Shannon Shaw, guitarist Cody Blanchard, and drummer Ian Amberson are tighter than ever, as catchy as always, and an unbelievably fun band to see live. Shaw, who belts louder and better than almost anyone else in rock n’ roll, and Blanchard, whose stage presence is matched only by his aptitude with six strings and bow ties, make up the core of Shannon and the Clams, and show no signs of slowing up or turning down any time soon.
