The Shakers do sure know how to throw a party. The party in question was actually a birthday party for lead singer Jodie 'Bomb' Schell who celebrated with 500 of her closest friends last Saturday at The Roxy. And helping her celebrate in front of a sold out crowd were Laura Wilde, Diamond Lane and Warner Drive.

Electrifying, high-octane rock. The Shakers don't know how to play any other way. And it's that explosive reputation that keeps their die-hard fans coming back for more. Jodie was in top form, singing songs from their 2010 self-titled debut EP and last year's debut album Oh So Loud going from simmering to boiling in "Train Song" and "Real Fast Plane" to face-pounding arena rock in "It's Me" and "Gimme Honey." The set lasted well over an hour with Jodie singing well over 10 songs as well as belting out brand new songs off their upcoming album.

They've been touring non-stop since their debut album Oh So Loud was released four months ago and from the looks of it, it doesn't seem like they're going to slow down anytime soon with planned gigs in Utah, San Francisco and Lake Arrowhead in the coming months. You can check out the rest of the photos from that night on our Flickr page right HERE.
