BLUES | Jane Lee Hooker

by

They call it the blues, but it ain't. New York City's Jane Lee Hooker is a rockin' bar band that comes out of the gate already blasting at 11, but it might be too vanilla to be the blues. When the band leans into the rock side of things, though, it sounds more sincere and frankly, pretty goddamn alright. You don't have to be old, black, and dead to be authentic, but you've just got to be careful you don't come off as a pastiche. It will be fun either way.

Jane Lee Hooker plays Thursday, April 21, at Dinosaur BBQ, 99 Court Street. 9 p.m. Free. dinosaurbarbque.com; janeleehooker.com.
