Burlington’s Gang of Thieves wrap up their spring residency tonight, performing a FREE SHOW at Putnam Den with special guest opener, School Bus Yellow.

Gang of Thieves is stealing back the spirit of American rock n roll!  These legendary Vermont Rockers bring the funky fury of the Northeast with them wherever they go. A national touring act, Gang of Thieves is coming to you live in support of their New album: “Thunderfunk”, recorded in Berkeley, CA with Grammy Award winning engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Less than Jake). The Gang was also recently nominated for “Rock Act of the Year” by the 2013 New England Music Awards, and Best Funk Group by 7 Days “Seven Daysies” contest.

Gang of Thieves’ sound and energy is a cross between Led Zeppelin and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with a funky blast of Green Mountain soul thrown in the mix. With a live show that will leave you screaming and exhausted from your nose to your rump, these up and coming rock stars will leave you begging for more!

School Bus Yellow is a four piece original psychedelic rock jam band originating from upstate New York.  Since the band was created on New Year’s Eve 2004, the band and crew have been touring all over the Northeast spreading the music and the name of school bus yellow to as many listeners as possible.
