The Next Generation to Rock

As post-punk/indie rock fans to age and lose their gusto for following the Great White Rock, one must consider the pre-teens who seek their rightful place as (cue the trumpets) “The Next Generation to Rock!”

That brings us to the band The Blisters, who played a covers-heavy set at Lollapalozza this past weekend. Scenestars wrote…

“Pre-teen rock band The Blisters played one if the most entertaining sets of the day in Chicago. If you haven’t heard of the them yet, don’t worry, you will. Consisting of Henry Mosher on vocals and bass, Hayden Holbert on guitar, Dylan Johnson on vocals and guitar and Spencer Tweedy, son of Jeff, on drums, the band played an extremely entertaining set consisting of songs like the Ramones’ Blitzkreig Bop, The Flaming Lips’ She Don’t Use Jelly, The Beatles’ Dear Prudence, Neal Young’s Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World, and to balance things out for an encore they played the Lynard Skynard(sic)classic Sweet Home Alabama.” (my bold emphasis above).
