The Pretty Babies (Blondie tribute): The biggest thing to hit the Lower East Side since the original, The Pretty Babies is an alt-rockergirl supergroup Blondie tribute band featuring Mony "The Falconess" Falcone (Sit 'N' Spin, BIG) on bass; Bibi Farber (The Richard Lloyd Group, The Ventilators) on keyboards; Heidi Leib (Sit 'n" Spin, the Lonesome Prairie Dogs) on lead guitar; Linda Pitmon (Steve Wynn's Miracle 3, The Baseball Project & The Minus 5) on drums; Jill Richmond (The Aquanettas, The Mean Reds) on rhythm guitar; and platinum chanteuse/provocateuse, Tammy Faye Starlite, on lead vocals.
A glorious pop-punky-glitter ball- Studio 54-meets-CBGB's night of late '70's decadent delirium awaits the concert goer. Sunday girls lurk fetchingly around the chronometric corner.
The Deafening assembled in early 2008 with two clear missions. First, the band intentionally shed nearly all the petty contrivances of popular modern rock by striping its sound to the raw heart of classic rock. Second, The Deafening seeks to earn its’ name by resurrecting the bombastic theater of the big live rock and roll show. Influences are numerous, and primarily counted as Guns N’ Roses, MC5, Iggy Pop, Kiss, The Rolling Stones, AC DC, Queen, and The Misfits. The band’s trademark is a unique blend of glam, horror, punk, blues and sleaze rock blasted through big guitar stacks, all while boasting one of the most interactive and memorable stage shows ever put together.
New York's Finest (Police tribute): Featuring Mark Rinzel (The Jupiter Deluxe, The Neutron Drivers and Bubble) - one of the few humans who can play bass and sing like 70's era Sting, New York's Finest boasts Oscar Bautista (Session musician, Broadway guitarist for "American Idiot" ) on guitar and Alan Camlet (Paul Collins Beat, Hoboken Recorders recording studio Producer/Engineer) on drums. They play with the intensity of the teenagers they were when cutting their teeth on The Police. Before the "Lute Album," before he lived in a castle, before the seven-hour yogic sex sessions, and before that Harper's Bazaar photo shoot, Sting was once cool. New York's Finest will remind you just how much you miss that guy.
Amerigo-go : AmeriGo-Go began playing together when their drummer Teddy "The Animal" Lytle discovered the process of resurrection while experimenting on Dodo eggs. Sean "Madman" Surdovel, while busy selling mad-space to myspace, called up his childhood friend to discover that he had mathematically proved the existence of AmeriGod-God on a roll of toilet paper. To Sean’s surprise, he had accidentally written ten numbers at the end of his theorum, which was the cell phone number Matt “The Professor” Robbins. Frantically grabbing the nearest megaphone, Sean shouted into the cell-walls of his apartment to reach Matt.
Matt picked up the call on his AmeriCell-Cell and transposed it into 19 tone music which he then taught to a colony of termintes who were living in his Breuklen apartment. The termintes chewed lyrics to the first song “Let Love Lead the Way” into the wood siding of his flat, causing it to collapse under the heavy message that had consumed its very foundations.
Nathan "2Cool4School" Windsor was busy in the nursing home singing all five verses of Cole Porter’s “You’re the Top” when he heard the apartment collapse and jumped into the nearest taxi cab, which was driven by a certain Mr. Andrew “The Russian Turkey” Prudnikov. Fate had dealt the cards all kings with no hearts, for the suicide jacks had stolen the crown.
The quintet took the field and has been jamming up the airways with tunes like “Let Love Lead the Way” “Brooklyn Girl” and “If you’re still reading this, we love you.... but we are very concerned about what you spend your day really doing"... also "Dance Pants"
