The UNKNOWN SOLDIERS A Celebration Of The Doors w/ The WALK-INS & The BRASS ACTION @ LanaLou's, 362 Powell Street . Show 9:30pm / $10 cover

The UNKNOWN SOLDIERS come amazingly close to replicating the music of THE DOORS note for note while capturing their raw energy through each band member's interpretation, combining to deliver a groovy reproduction of a live Doors show that keeps audiences in a head-bobbing, toe-tapping trance. Their singer's Morrison-esque look, vibe and baritone voice combine with swirling organs and deft musicianship to captivate and transcend time and place, allowing audiences to be transported back in time to experience a taste of live shows that are now a part of rock mythology.

The WALK-INS have conspired together to create a new musical concoction that seems strangely familiar yet somehow alien. Some say it's blues, some say it's rock or even urban folk... perhaps it's all three mixed together in a musical blender and seasoned with a dash of grit and grind and a hint of grunge.

The BRASS ACTION plays horn-driven ska at its finest, bringing a wide variety of influences and styles to the stage. This high energy quintet have a song "Devil Down Below" featured in the Daniel Radcliffe movie Horns. Be prepared to dance, skank, mosh, sweat and find out why they're called The Brass Action!
