My Goodness brewed up some bluesy rock ‘n’ roll in the KEXP’s Bean Room session this past weekend. Check out this video from their in-studio earlier this year and don’t miss this Seattle duo’s face melting rock at Bumbershoot 2011!
Seattle’s own My Goodness has a knack for hammering out pure and simple distillations of rock, blues and punk. Their live performances are highlighted by muscular guitar work and heavy but measured percussion. Watch the band rip in to rock & roll with their video for “I’ve Got a Notion,” then find them live on Monday, September 5th at Bumbershoot 2011!
