Village Voice: "Grown-and-sexy" (posted 08.21.2008)
The Village Voice offers up this preview of our 8/22 show at Bowery Ballroom:
Gotham has a credible, classic rock n' roll sound, after decades of drought, courtesy of eclectic string-slingers like Band of Thieves' Peter Smith. He's associated with a homegrown, honky-tonkin' New York circle that's finally been able to wrest this aesthetic template from Southern rock's long superior brothers and sisters. Dig "Woman" and it's quite clear Smith and his band have re-inserted skillful heavy-hard tension into meandering New Rock City. We'll be shaking our moneymakers come Friday since Smith, comely front man Tyler Rann, and 'nem are the true definition of grown-and-sexy. With Your Vegas, Jupiter One, and Designer Drugs. CRAZY HORSE.
