"If you took me in 2007 and put me in my shoes now, my mind would be blown," says Ryan Gullen, bass player of The Sheepdogs. "On the road we've had to adapt and learn how to work under more pressure---everything last year was flying by the seat of our pants. At that point we didn't have anyone helping us out so we spent a lot of time learning with no buffer from one thing to the next. It helped us to be better." The hardworking band deserves a little luxury this time around, after touring for the past 11 months, pausing only for two weeks to record their new self-titled album with Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, it's been go go go and there's no indication they'll be slowing down anytime soon. "We want to take the music we have, challenge ourselves and get [it] to as many ears as we can," he says. Tuesday at the Olympic Community Hall, those lucky ears could be yours. --LR
