The Kicks have been playing together since high school, but made their debut on the national stage in 2015 when they began a series of cross-country tours, following up the EP Chasing Waves (self-released, 2016) with the full-length album Booty Shakers Ball (self-released, 2017), which plays like an old-school party packed into 15 tracks.…

Sprinklers from a nearby nursery were showering water onto the broken sidewalk in front of her, so Martinez walked out into the shoulder of Lee Road and pressed on.Things were fairly urgent for Martinez, 52.
