Our good friend Paul Roessler was playing keyboards for Nina Hagen in San Francisco, and came back to L.A. raving about the opening act, Storm and the Balls. We booked them for a couple of shows in our small showcase room, where they blew everyone away with their lounge-core mash-ups of material as diverse as Abba and Motorhead. Since that time, lead singer and frontwoman-deluxe Storm went on to reality show fame as one of the finalists on Rockstar Supernova, and now will now be headlining our main stage. Funny thing, that reality TV. Meanwhile, the group’s recent single “Ladylike” sold out its pressing and reappeared as a download-only release with added guitar firepower from Dave Navarro.
