Hell's Belles guitarist Adrian Conner brings The Sickness to Boise

Treasure Valley rock fans will readily recognize Adrian Conner. She is the SG-strapped guitarist channeling the persona of Angus Young for the all-female AC/DC tribute band, Hell’s Belles: A gig she has held for a dozen years for a band that has become a Boise fan favorite. This month Adrian returns with her own project which will light up The Liquid on Memorial Day, May 26. Tix are only $5, so by any standard it is a worthwhile investment just to watch her shred the guitar.

Adrian Conner has watched her solo band, Adrian & the Sickness make a continual progression over the years. She has released a string of exciting and energetic albums marking the evolution of her songwriting and style. The most recent of these is “Be Your Own Saviour”, which the singer, songwriter, and of course guitarist tells The Examiner will be the last as “& the Sickness”. It is just Adrian these days--as well it should be.

“Be Your Own Saviour” is Adrian’s most expansive album to date. It still contains her usual alternative pop-rock edginess, but there are many new flavors and nuances in the mix. As Conner offers:

“It's an experience album meant to be listened to from start to finish. Kind of like ‘Darkside of the Moon’ with a less specific story line and more, loud, horny parts.”

The new record marks the final recordings with long-time bassist Heather Webb, and Adrian stated it "showcases her best bass playing to date." "Be Your Own Saviour" is both a continuation and an evolution of her previous effort, the acclaimed “B.F.D.”, which was produced by Go-Go’s bassist, Kathy Valentine. This time around Conner handled production duties with Alex Lyon who owns the highly popular studio, Bubble, in Austin, Texas.

Adrian has called Austin home for the last decade, but her never-ending touring with Hell’s Belles and with her own band has made the road her real home. The constant string of club dates for both bands, predominantly in the western half of the U.S., has honed and refined her fret skills as well as her energetic, exciting, and yes, sexy performances. She has continued to improve her vocal prowess and find her voice as a front woman along the road well-traveled.

Experience Adrian at The Liquid, Monday, May 26, catch the sickness and be your own savior!
