It's been months in the making — well, three to be exact — and it's officially upon us: the first studio recordings by bluesy rock 'n' rollers The Rooks. The Vegas quartet will be back in former "resident" stamping ground the Griffin to celebrate the release of a self-titled, five-track EP. Singer Zach Ryan describes the project, recording at the home studio of Black Camaro's Brain Garth, as "pretty simple, not really a production. We just really wanted to maintain that live feel," he adds. The EP will cost $5 at the show, with profits going toward the group's projected end-of-summer tour.

  • If the venue continues to book rising stars, it might just be the best place to see them before they get big.

  • There were loud sing-alongs and vigorous mosh pits throughout the night, but it was all still fueled by nostalgia.

  • The band, which turns Velvet Underground songs into pizza anthems, hits LVCS on November 16.
