New York-based up-and-comers The Pretty Reckless are playing House of Blues this Saturday night in support of their recently-released album Who You Selling For. The first single from the new album, “Take Me Down,” reached #1 on the rock charts.
This milestone marks the fourth consecutive #1 for the band who broke records as the
first female-fronted band to have three chart toppers in a row with “Heaven Knows,” “Messed Up World” and “Follow Me Down” (all from 2014’s Going To Hell), a feat that has not been accomplished since The Pretenders in 1984, over 30 years ago.
Yeah, the lead singer is also an actress; most of you would remember her from the show Gossip Girl or her lead role as Cindy-Lou Who in the Jim Carrey version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas.
But please, don’t make this a Kevin Costner-like can-this-person-really-rock curiosity appearance. This band is one of the hottest and hardest touring bands right now. Their current tour schedule is taking them across the country and back in six brutal weeks.
Frontgirl Taylor Momsen, who also slings a rhythm guitar, leads her quartet into the House of Blues for a 7:00 performance in he main room. Support acts Holy White Hounds and Them Evils start off the festivities.
