The Pretty Reckless, Starland Ballroom, Sayreville NJ - November 20, 2017

I first saw the Pretty Reckless in May of 2015 on the Jersey shore, and had no idea of what to expect. But I really did like them. So now, 2 1/2 years later, having listened to their music and knowing their songs, I was ready for a kick ass show. And that's exactly what I got.

With Taylor Momsen's gritty voice and her band's great music behind her, rock is alive and well with the Pretty Reckless. With a solid 12 song set, they rocked the Starland Ballroom with a sold out show before leaving for tour in Europe. Starting in Denmark in mid November, they will finish in Paris in mid December.

It was a great set list with everyone in the crowd holding up their lighters and cell phone lights to "Who You Selling For." The encore finished the show with "Fucked up World," with drummer Jamie Perkins doing a fantastic 10 minute solo!

It was a long wait to get to see them again, but well worth it !! Taylor Momsen, Ben Phillips, Mark Damon, Jamie Perkins, thank you for a great show. Anyone
looking for some great rock, be sure to see them on their next tour. I know I will be going again! They are a must see rock band.

Set List
Follow me down
Since you're gone

Sweet things
Who you selling for
Living in the storm
Heaven knows
going to hell Take me down
