Just only a week ago, I was at Slim’s in San Francisco and enjoying the incredible, Russian, British and American band lineup that comprised of Louna, Heaven’s Basement and The Pretty Reckless. You can read our reviews of Louna and Heaven’s Basement here. It was quite a night as these three very different bands came together and gave an amazing show that had the crowd continuously rockin out all night.

This was the first time I saw The Pretty Reckless although I did get to enjoy Taylor Momsen as she joined Marilyn Manson on stage for the 2012 Revolver Golden Gods Awards.  I have the footage in the Links below.

One thing is for sure The Pretty Reckless has amazing stage presence and their songs are so damn good. I was immediately drawn in and excited to watch  more. Taylor Momsen has stated in the past that her musical influences are Kurt Cobain and Joan Jett and that is exactly what you get with her! She has this amazing grunge style with this rockin attitude and knows how to work the crowd. From start to finish, I was highly impressed with this band. Ben Phillips on lead guitar and backing vocals was spot on and had some incredible guitar licks and cool slide. Mark Damon on the bass took control of the left side of the stage as he plucked out solid bass lines without ever losing his shades, he is a cool cat. Jamie Perkins delivered such precision drumming it was as if you were listening to the original drum tracks, insane! Then you go back to center stage and Taylor has you mesmerized with her charismatic energy. She really has a magnetic personality and you can’t help but fall in love with her voice!

So check out the video that Rockin Ryan put together for one of their big songs, “My Medicine” that includes photos and footage of the spectacular night!


The Pretty Reckless recently released a video for their awesome song “Going To Hell” which is off their upcoming new album. They have hit over 600,000 views in less than a week, amazing!! Check it out here:

You can actually download “Going To Hell” on Itunes now here. Make sure to check out their social  media sites so you can keep up to date on their tour dates and new album!
