Gore Gore Girls
The Suede Brothers (CD Release)
Tavern | All Ages
Harnessing sheer rock power for the forces of good, the Gore Gore Girls strut their stuff with boldness and attitude, throwing down dirty grooves and instigating scenes of libertine abandon in nightclubs around the world. What sets them apart is their underlying respect for the legends of earlier eras. From Bo Diddley to The Ronettes, The Sonics to The Saints, the Gore Gore Girls take inspiration from the greats and inject it with hi-octane ferocity, forging a new sound with a modern edge. Formed in Detroit in 1997, the band has released a string of albums that earned raves from the likes of the Village Voice and capturing the attention of fans like Little Steven Van Zandt, who has given the band plenty of airplay on the syndicated show "Underground Garage" and included them in the line-up of his garage rock festival in New York City, where they joined Iggy and the Stooges, The Pretty Things and the New York Dolls. The band held down a slot on the national tour in 2006 in support of The Zombies and Mooney Suzuki, carrying the rock n’ roll torch with their usual style and aplomb. To appreciate this music, you have to have a streak of wildness, a fierce independence of spirit, and an absolute belief in the unusual, the strange, the unpredictable, the offbeat, and even the generally unacceptable. Opening are ear-opening duo Mr. Gnome, a band that's made some waves in the pool of local press; and last year's darlings, ex-Black Diamonds the Suede Brothers, who've grown up past the "kids in a band" point and have moved on to make some head-banging Grand Funk-flavored rock n' roll. This will be their CD Release.
