Plenty of room left at the venue when doors open at 8pm tonight! Still only $15!
Sloppy Seconds is a Ramones-influenced punk band from Indianapolis, Indiana that started in the mid-1980s. They gained notoriety in the underground punk scene with songs like "Come Back, Traci" (a tribute to the underage porn queen Traci Lords), "I Don't Want to be a Homosexual", "Jani is a Nazi", "I Want 'em Dead" and "So F^$ed up".
The band's unusual and controversial lyrics encompass pornography, classic horror movies, classic television shows, comic books, alcohol, being fat, and getting drunk.
The Queers are a punk rock band from New Hampshire, formed in 1982. Singer/Guitarist/Songwriter Joe King has been the principal member of the group, with a vast number of musicians cycling in and out of the band over the years. Supposedly, the band name 'Queers' was used simply to poke fun at what he called the "Art Fag" community in NH. That same brand of humor and inanity has become a staple of The Queers music, who have produced songs such as "Can't Stop Farting", "Born To Do Dishes", and "I Can't Get Invited To The Prom" in their own Ramones-esque style. While some punk rock bands attempt to use their music to impart a social or political message, King has made it clear that The Queers exist simply to play punk rock for the fun of it.
The Queers play a Ramones/Beach Boys style of pop punk with songs about girls and beer. King has often collaborated with Ben Weasel, from Screeching Weasel. The band begun with a notoriety primarily in their own backyard, but with the release of Love Songs for the Retarded, recorded by legendary punk producer Mass Giorgini, their following grew to international proportions. They have collaborated with Mass Giorgini several times since.
Vice Tricks are a Psychobilly Rock project based out of Louisville, KY; Described as "Social Distortion, meets Reverend Horton Heat." Featuring the Devilish Ms. Verity Vice on Upright Bass, Dr. Evol on keys and a slew of cretins and rockers around them
Forming from ashes of prominent long-running Louisville punk bands, Vice Tricks began as a way to combine our love of 50's-60's Rock & Roll with the energy of 70's punk rock. We have carefully crafted, carved, and botched our sound into something unique. Mixing the deep growl of the Upright Bass with some dirty guitars and a classically trained pianist we've developed Vice Tricks into the chaos machine that it is.
Be My Doppelganger is four dudes from the Midwest that play punk rock music and have fun doing so....
