On Tuesday, Jan. 13, Mic Check Musicpresents The Smokin’ Aces Tour starring Consider Me Dead, The Animal in Me and Caramel Carmela at The Jam Spot (239 San Pedro NE). Consider Me Dead is a desert-like, electronic rock entity out of Arizona whose output features smooth vocalizations, heavy beats and ethereal keyboards.
The Animal in Me is a melodic Bay Area rock band with an elusive late-career Fleetwood Mac sound to their latest recorded work, while Caramel Carmela does a mashup of EDM and hardcore punk that’s perplexing and intriguing. Not surprisingly, this is an all-ages concert where attendance can be secured by paying $12 for a ticket landing one near paradise if not directly in its midst. Doors are at 6:30pm, and the show starts at about 7pm. (August March)
