I love a musician who knows how to give a good rock face, and brothers Pete and Jake Adams from Valkyrie definitely have that skill down. Meanwhile bass player Alan Fary and drummer Warren Hawkins (truly Valkyrie's secret weapon) are in the back, laying it down and providing a solid rhythm that can stand up to the Adams brothers intricate riffing. Their latest album, Shadows, is one of the best albums of the year. Their show on Friday at Slim's was only the second time I've seen them, but it was intense and good. Looking forward to seeing them again. See more photos here.
