      Albert Hammond, Jr.

      Live Show Review

      The Middle East, Cambridge, MA

      By Gabe Straight, Music Journalist

      Boston Rock Radio



      Being a normal and functioning human being who likes rock, I regard The Strokes very highly. Their garage rock aesthetic skyrocketed and inspired so many bands working today. Knowing this, I was very excited to see Albert Hammond Jr.’s Middle East takeover, promoting his new album Francis Trouble. I wanted to know what the album was like before going to the show, so I gave it a listen. The album is everything you would expect from someone who played guitar for The Strokes, but that’s not a bad thing. Earworm riffs, dirty and raw mix, a fun attitude...I loved it.


      The first and only opening band was The Marias, and they have a lot of potential as a band. I loved their combination of latin and electro rock they put into their sound. The only drawback I had was how all their songs seemed to fade too easily into each other. There wasn’t a whole lot of identity to them.


      When Albert came on stage with his band, the fun and care-free attitude from the album was on full display from the first song. Albert had a great demeanor to himself, like he was holding a party at the Middle East and everyone was invited. He talked to the audience and joked. The band never missed a beat, and everyone had a blast.


      Just as he came on stage, he left without wearing out his welcome even a little bit, and I left that night enjoying the crap out of myself. It was a spectacular night, and I am definitely keeping my eyes out for when Albert comes back to Boston.
