Women That Rock NYC: Lisa Bianco

Lisa Bianco: May 9, 2011 @ Bowery Electric, New York, NY

Third on the bill at the Women That Rock NYC show was Lisa Bianco. She came armed with a new band, bassist Kenny Aaronson, drummer Lou Petto and for one song Kathy Zimmer helping out on vocals. I haven't had the chance to catch Biano play for a while so it was a pleasure to see her again. Anyone who knows me knows that I have an appreciation for chicks that rock hard. And folks, that's just what Bianco does! The song that first drew me to Biano's work was "Sideways" and I still love it. But, if you've ever seen her play "Sun Glare" then you've likely had one of those, holy hell, sweet mercy, orgasmic brain fuck moments.

Bianco is a personable performer with buckets of talent. On this night it seemed like she rocked even harder then when I last saw her. She did slow things down a notch when she did an awesome solo version of "Cruel Summer." Do yourself a favor and check her out when you get the chance.
