New Guitar Center Sessions Series on DirecTV Begins Tonight

Guitar Center and DirecTV premier a new series of GC Sessions featuring legends like Joe Walsh, newcomers like Andy Allo and a smattering of talents in between.  Leading off the series premier on DirecTV tonight is the infamous Joe Walsh for an intimate session of guitar riffs and questions from Nic Harcourt.  The Eagle will be seen on airings of the same episode repeatedly as well as tonight at 7 pm and 9 pm, and in coming weeks you will get to see artists like Ben Folds Five, Meiko, Jimmy Cliff, Papa Roach, Skyler Grey, Hoobastank and even Kinky.   

SUPERGOOD had the privilege of sitting in on Andy Allo and Kinky‘s sessions which each took place in the room housing the expensive guitars at the famous Sunset Blvd. location.  In a feat of production reconstruction – crew transforms the room into a solid live studio for a week.  

Kinky turned things up a notch – especially their percussionist.  Fan or not – I urge you to check out them playing “Perfecta” when their GC Session airs.  Andy Allo illustrated why she gets Prince‘s endorsement with some tight choreography and a 6 piece horns section that was totally boss.  Both are worthy of space on your DVR.
