Downtown Brew will host a “musical love affair” on June 27 when Unwritten Law lead singer Scott Russo and his girlfriend Aimee Allen take the stage with their self-entitled punk rock band Scott and Aimee.
The newly established collaboration between beaus Russo and Allen came as a refreshing surprise to many Unwritten Law fans, according to Scott and Aimee’s profile on www.myspace.com.
“Scott met Aimee when she opened on tour for his band Unwritten Law,” according to an announcement on Downtown Brew’s Web site, www.downtownbrewingco.com. “Their passion and chemistry was undeniable, and their raw songwriting talents together combined to create the powerhouse music that you hear here. The rock world has been waiting for Scott and Aimee, (now) here they are.”
The duo began performing together in 2005 and later hit the road in 2006 after Unwritten Law abruptly ended their “Here’s to the Mourning” tour after switching recording labels and searching for a new drummer. But the band’s extreme popularity gave Scott and Aimee ample name recognition in the music business.
“Maybe (Russo) is touring with his girlfriend because he sees it as a chance to do something new. And Unwritten Law has never had a female member of the band sing or play music,” said Unwritten Law fan and San Diego native Alex Jones.
Jones added that she hoped the new music would reinvigorate the quality of certain synthesized punk rock bands that have recently stared adownward spiral in the genre.
The 21-and-over show begins at 8 p.m. with opening acts Nothing Ever Stays and Ivoryline. For tickets go to www.ticketweb.com or Boo Boo Records.
