City Slang: Amy Gore’s Valentines release “Drivin’ Around” single and video



Amy Gore & her Valentines have announced that they will release “Drivin’ Around” as a single, and there is an accompanying video which will be screened at the band’s Thanksgiving Eve show at Smalls in Hamtramck. The song will be available for download on iTunes, Amazon, eMusic and other online retailers.

Anybody who attended Arts, Beats & Eats, the Blowout (when they were still called the Squires) or my Stooges book launch party, knows how good this band is, and they just keep getting better. A full length record is highly anticipated.

According to the press release, “Amy Gore and Her Valentines came together organically and quickly gelled into a band that sounds like they’ve spent years together. Their dramatic stage presence demands attention – great song craft and unforgettable melodies will keep audiences in thrall long after that first glance.”

True dat.
