Lead singer Jodie Schell’s birthday bash at The Viper Room in Hollywood was The Shakers kicking ass on stage like a runaway train tearing through back country blues, a burning fireball of sultry rock, dark dressed and striking sleek as a black cat clawing into a back alley rat, cute frills with sharp vocals that shred with screams yet soothes like the taste of strawberries, volatile explosive with sensitive fragility, a radiating presence, an ever glow joy on her face like the girl on that Japanese Milky candy licking her lips with rosy puff cheeks and big smile until the inner beast gets unleashed, a woman that knows how to breath fire to exhale the pain, the night belonged to her like shadows creeping through the red light district, therapeutic for torn hearts and photo burned memories, futile fugitive feelings that can never escape or be erased, her dark clouds that thunders, lightning, and floods speakers, barbwire cries, a loving forceful sound that no man can reproduce and most women can only emit while giving birth, exploding like a grenade striking audience eyes wide and bodies recoiling to her blasting force, cranked loud while exuding softness, sweet and dangerous as a box of chocolate covered habanera peppers or a razorblade birthday cake, a vocal flame thrower, sledge hammer, and a quart of Jack Daniel’s with wrecking ball impact, a scorching heat wave igniting air to flame, an unexpected oil rig fire that burns endless through their set, wonderful yet shattering like a brick through a sunlight bright pane glass church window, rainbow glass snowflakes that cut to bleed, an inviting oleander poisonous flower as colorful as a black widow spider, but with a friendly kind lovingness that brings cupcakes to share at her own birthday party. So, this is Happy Birthday, Jodie “Bomb” Schell!!! And Thanks to The Shakers for blowing away the crowd like the candles on that birthday cake!!!
