I caught The Shannon Lyon Pop Explosion at The Legendary Horseshoe Tavern on Friday night. They were opening for 90s local legends The Killjoys and they did an awesome job of warming up the crowd with their tunes.

The music was a great blend of big power pop chords, vocals with a hint of twang, Neil Young inspired guitar solos and a rock-solid rhythm section. Great stuff!

Their set included a tune from Shannon's old band Strange Days called "Last Time I Cried" and a cover of Flaming Lips "She Don't Use Jelly". Cool stuff. I'd love to see them perform again.

Give them a listen:

"Last Time I Cried"

"Never Even Tried"

Closing tune "Mods Rule"
