On a lark, I went and checked out Fayetteville, AR based  Shawn James & the Shapeshifters. A healthy mix of rock, blues, soul and  whiskey, of course! Opening the show was Michael Maimone of the Chicago band Mutts. Call me a cynical prick but if even for only one night, Shawn James & the Shapeshifters and Michael Maimone restored my faith and love for music. Thanks Fellas! -cooper-         [lg_slideshow folder=\”Shawn James and the Shapeshifters/Shawn James and the Shapeshifters/\”]   [lg_slideshow folder=\”Shawn James and the Shapeshifters/Michael Maimone of Mutts/\”]
