SLCene Suggests: Sallie Ford at The Urban Lounge

by on November 24, 2014


SALLIE FORD, THE URBAN LOUNGE, Monday, Nov. 24, 9 p.m., $10

You might recall Sallie Ford from past visits with her former band The Sound Outside, a crew that had a distinct bit of twang and a rockabilly vibe at times. If you’re a fan of that “old” Ford sound, chances are you’ll like her new project, too. But you can consider her a whole new thing and be right on the money as well. The songs on Slap Back, her solo debut, were crafted by Ford and a new all-girl band, and veers out of the honky tonk and into surf, garage-rock, even some punk-sounding tunes. Ford considers the album an “ode to all the babe rockers” like Pat Benatar and PJ Harvey, Exene Cervenka and Joan Jett. Can’t blame a girl for trying to sound like those ladies. Strong Words open the show.
