Imelda May plays Knuckleheads Saloon on Sunday
There’s a wild woman living inside of me, Imelda May sings on her latest album, Tribal. She’s not kidding.
The Dublin-born rockabilly vixen has been stirring up foot-stomping trouble since her 2003 debut, No Turning Back. And if audiences aren’t already primed to receive May’s retro throwback hits “Johnny Got a Boom Boom” and “Mayhem,” well, one fierce look from the frontwoman — usually outfitted in 1940s-era asset-illuminating dresses with perfectly coiled black-and-white bangs — will be all it takes to become a believer.
