These are the bands playing tonight! What order are they playing in? Your guess is every bit as good as ours!
- Low Fat Getting High are fast, noisy and shouty. We’d call it punk but the vocalist is too talented. Like Chris Cornell’s punk little cousin or something. Shades of very Bleach-era Nirvana. A trio with muscle and energy. Listen here.
- The Last Throes say, “We are the cappicolla o’ rock’n’rolla.” They are “Neil— guitar, vox / Liam— bass, vox / Mark— drums.” They don’t have any music online (that we can find).
- New Damage are, in their own words, “The band playing on the boom box of the guy taking his uncle’s donkey to the abortion clinic.” Their interests include “playing songs, doing shows, speaking the truth about the world from the comfort of The Beast’s couch, stealing pies.” In our words? They make super noisy short and angry super aggro punk. Listen here.
- Crusty P has self-classified into the genre “Hip Hop / Crust Rap Steady / Crusty Punk.” Her Facebook bio reads: “Straight outta the squat— the only female crusty punk rapper to walk the filthy streets of NYC. You never heard anything like it before, worlds collide.” She’s really only got one song online, and it’s a goofy kid beat loop with lo-fi rhymes over it. We highly recommend that you listen to it.
We’ll mark the special occasion with Twig The Wonderkid’s birthday spectacular, featuring Dena Rutledge, Levi Steffensen, Lon Rozelle and more.
There will also be free PBR from 11PM until midnight, or when supplies run out— whichever is first, so no arguing with the bartenders!
Tonight’s Glamdammit! will be hosted by Astro Erle and Chris Khaos and will feature video by Party Fowl Productions, photographs by Subterraneans, DJ Sets by Twig The Wonderkid and James David, and the following live performers:
- 1:00 AM — Michael T and the Vanities have been described as a “glam rock phenomenon.” Michael T’s band tonight consists of special guests Mick Royale, Birdy Black, Traci Danielle, Juli B Smith and more.
- 12:00 AM — The Brats were a seminal force in the early New York City music scene, and they’re still going today. They were formed in 1972 by an ex-New York Doll, they were given their band name by Alice Cooper, and they were the first band that KISS ever opened for. We’d say this star-studded resume is, uh, quite adequate. Listen here.
- The Romans aim to “encompass the best parts of rock n’ roll nostalgia incorporating everything from 50′s doo wop, 60′s brit rock, and 70′s glam,” according to founder Jeremy Fury. We’d say they got it right, successfully incorporating elements of Tommy James, The Zombies, The Faces and T Rex, among others. Listen here.
